I wonder if "false for same, true for different" calling convention
makes much sense, but it matches the old "0 for same" so obviously
makes for a smaller diff.

If it ever ends up confusing people, maybe the sense of that function
should be reversed, and the name changed to something like
"same_inode_version()" or something.

But at least for now the situation seems ok to me,
