English term or phrase:a true flag day
Needless to say, the current XFS on-disk format does not provide for the storage of all this extra data. That implies an on-disk format change. The plan, according to Dave, is to not provide any sort of forward or backward format compatibility; ***the format change will be a true flag day***. This is being done to allow complete freedom in designing a new format that will serve XFS users for a long time. While the format is being changed to add the above-described reliability features, the developers will also add space for d_type in the directory structure, NFSv4 version counters, the inode creation time, and, probably, more. The maximum directory size, currently a mere 32GB, will also be increased.
