Probably wouldn't hurt to update the ChangeLog with the XFS
version increment.

Should be <command> tags, probably.

You should run the test suite again after completing the

This really needs to be reworded. It says to run the tests,
but then it says it is broken and to run them later.

Which is it? Now or later? Running it twice just to see if
it breaks seems a bit odd. Seems it would be trivial to change
the call in the tests to use the newly created sshd.
