 The \fIdirectio\fR flag causes all I/O to a regular file to be Direct
 I/O, even if the O_DIRECT flag isn't used on the open() command.
 
 The \fIimmutable\fR flag marks the file immutable. The behavior is

-The \fIinherit_jdata\fR flag is set on a directory.  It causes all new

+Note: Unlike the original gfs_tool, the journaled data (\fIjdata\fR) flag
