I don't know how it differs, but XFS is described in some detail in a
Usenix paper (Jan. 1996, San Diego, "Scalability in the XFS File System").
I remember that there was some discussion after the paper was presented
about comparing it with LFS, but that's all I remember (Keith Smith &
Margo Seltzer presented a paper right afterward entitled "A Comparison
of FFS Disk Allocation Policies").
