Oh right, warn about unknown.
That would make sense.

Here's a proposed patch:
Subject: [PATCH] tail: with -f, use polling when a file is on an FS of
  unknown type

thanks for that. Definitely a good thing (including the more explicit table of local/remote fs types and the idea of printing a message for unknown fs types to show people an easy way to contribute to the table).

Best regards,
