Does JFS have quota support now?

Last I looked it was still on the To Do list.


I remember them adding it four months ago or so. Looking at
it seems to be mostly in changeset 1.1803.133.1

Oh, that's good news. This was one reason you couldn't really consider using JFS on a /home fileserver (which sort of implies quotas). It perhaps it needs a lot of testing as it's quite new. Any experiences? (ie. survives a highly parallel load from a lot of threads with different uids).
