There is a whitepaper available on SGI's webserver. It however does
not refer to the really interesting details.
As far as the complexity of writing an XFS-like fs is concerned - SGI has
invested a significant fraction of the R&D of XFS into the realtime stuff.
So ignoring that part for the beginning makes the task of writing a XFS
like filesystem much easier.
