Thanks for answering that - I hope to bump the code up to 2.4.0-test4 (or 5 if
it shows up in time) in the next few days. In the meantime the cvs tree is
always the most uptodate way of getting the code.
I do not think that SGI will do a backport to 2.2.x, XFS requires too many
infrastructure changes in the rest of the kernel to do all the work twice.
Now if someone feels inclined to attempt the port you, are welcome to do
