Each manual page should start with a "NAME" section, which lists the name and a brief description of the page separated by "\-". The "NAME" section is parsed by lexgrog and used to generate a database that's queried by commands like apropos and whatis. This tag indicates that lexgrog was unable to parse the NAME section of this manual page.
For manual pages that document multiple programs, functions, files, or other things, the part before "\-" should list each separated by a comma and a space. Each thing listed must not contain spaces; a man page for a two-part command like "fs listacl" must use something like "fs_listacl" in the "NAME" section so that it can be parsed by lexgrog.
Refer to the lexgrog(1) manual page, the groff_man(7) manual page, and the

this should be fixed in kernel 3.11 by commit 42c49d7f249c2487f36d3314753d5d8ebcee8249
And according to https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/commit/?id=42c49d7f249c2487f36d3314753d5d8ebcee8249, the bug was during mkdir when a default acl was set.

Proposed refpurpose:
```
Workaround XFS sgid bit not inherited during mkdir with default acls on Linux older than 3.11
```
I'm not english native. Any rewording
