      Description

      Our documentation currently states that only Ext4 has been tried (by LinkedIn):

      "Ext4 may or may not be the best filesystem for Kafka. Filesystems like XFS supposedly handle locking during fsync better. We have only tried Ext4, though."
      http://kafka.apache.org/documentation.html#ext4

      I think this is no longer true, so we should update the documentation.
