XFS is not something I look into the innards of as I don't have
enough chickens to sacrifice.

On the subject of the longstanding "treason uncloaked!" kernel message:
Most people won't actually think their printer is on fire. But most
people WILL think there is serious cause for concern when they see
this for the first time in dmesg. Many will search the net for
explanations and come away confused and not entirely reassured. And
at least one clueless guy will call the police because he still
thinks he's under attack.
Now that certainly fits my definition of amusing and if my goal for
Linux was to amuse myself at the expense of users, I'd be all for
keeping it. But perversely, I actually want users to enjoy their
 Hell, I'd probably even get them to use git.

It's never been rejected. For a long time it has been in a state where
we're looking for the data which would allow us to agree that its
benefits are worth its costs. AFAIK that has never really been
convincingly demonstrated. Nor has the converse case been
demonstrated, so it floats in limbo.
