Comments in XFS, especially weird scary ones, are rarely
wrong. Some of them might have been there for close on 20 years,
but they are our documentation for all the weird, scary stuff that
XFS does. I rely on them being correct, so it's something I always
pay attention to during code review. IOWs, When we add, modify or
remove something weird and scary, the comments are updated
appropriately so we'll know why the code is doing something weird
and scary in another 20 years time.

Just to get back at you though, I'll turn on an incandescent light
bulb every time I have to use -f.
