"original source" is where the API came from - that's
XFS_IOC_FSGETXATTR - and xfsctl from xfsprogs is where that was
documented. That page documents a bunch of other XFS specific
ioctls, too, so it is appropriately located.

Like I said, I thought patches had been sent to Michael to lift the
FS_IOC_FSGETXATTR documentation from this page into the official
linux man pages package. If not, that can be chased up separately,
but the XFS ioctl man page certainly does not belong there.

Cheers,

Dave.
