Fixed In Version: coreutils-8.4-40.el6
Doc Type: Release Note
Doc Text:
The Oracle ACFS is now included among known file systems Previously, the Oracle ASM Cluster file system (ACFS) was not listed among known file systems for the *stat* and *tail* utilities. As a consequence, the *tail* utility printed an error message stating that the file system was not recognized. ACFS has been added to the list of known file systems, and the error message no longer appears in the described situation. In addition, other file systems recognized by upstream have been added to the list of known file systems as well, namely `acfs`, `bpf_fs`, `btrfs_test`, `configfs`, `efivarfs`, `exofs`, `f2fs`, `hfs+`, `hfsx`, `hostfs`, `ibrix`, `logfs`, `nsfs`, `overlayfs`, `smackfs`, `snfs`, `tracefs`, and `ubifs`.

Comment 2 Pádraig Brady 2015-11-11 15:15:26 UTC
Note this file system is out of kernel tree.
Also newer versions of tail will not warn about this.
In any case this definition has been added to upstream at:

Comment 9 Branislav Blaškovič 2016-03-29 12:58:43 UTC

This patch introduces all new FS recognized by upstream.
