OT: Wikipedia FS comparsion page needs update
I think we should conduct a slight PR move
and update  w.r.t HAMMER.
What can be said about data layout?
The table at  has following columns:
? Block suballocation
? Variable file block size
+ Sparse files
- Transparent compression
What are those limitations for HAMMER?
? Maximum filename length
? Allowable characters in directory entries (are there exceptions?)
? Maximum pathname length
? Maximum file size
Does it support ACLs, Security/MAC labels,
extended attributes, alternate data streams, forks?
What can be said about CoW, Block journaling or
Metadata-only journaling of HAMMER?
Can something be said w.r.t XIP ?
I guess HAMMER volume still cannot be shrunk,
nor can it deduplicate.
