Bleh.  This is in the test code for testing AIX file system support.  AIX
dumped that crap into the header of /etc/filesystems/filesystems on all
AIX machines.

The content of the file is almost certainly not copyrightable.  It's the
AIX equivalent of /etc/fstab from some random test system, which is just a
mechanical description of mounts and mount options.  (Also, there's
basically no chance that IBM cares.)  But it might be easiest to just
delete the test and its data, since the chances of anyone caring about AIX
file system support at this point is low.
