Hi All,

I'm trying to determine which versions of the GPFS file system format
are compatible with certain versions of the GPFS software.
Specifically in this instance I'm interested if file system format
v11.05 (from GPFS is compatible with GPFS 3.5 .

The "File system format changes between versions of GPFS" [1] chapter
mentions format levels as old a v6, which infers that they are
compatible. But it would be useful to know for certain.
