I don't think "xfs: add inode on-disk VERITY flag" is an accurate description of
a patch that involves adding something to the UAPI.

Should the other filesystems support this new flag too?

I'd also like all ways of getting the verity flag to continue to be mentioned in
Documentation/filesystems/fsverity.rst.  The existing methods (FS_IOC_GETFLAGS
and statx) are already mentioned there.
