A word of warning. XFS has just upgraded to kernel 2.4.0-test13-pre3
with Linus's new Makefile format. Not all architectures have upgraded
yet, so standard test13-pre3 (and therefore XFS) is not guaranteed to
compile at the moment. Now is not a good time to try XFS on a new
arch, it would be better to wait until the Makefile changes have died
The following architectures have _not_ converted to the new Makefiles
as of 2.4.0-test13-pre3.
alpha (only math-emu is a problem)
sh (Hitachi Super-H)
There are also some drivers that are not up to date, drivers/acorn/*,
drivers/s390/*, drivers/sgi/char, drivers/tc and drivers/zorro. Also
there is no guarantee that the Makefiles that have been changed are
accurate, Linus did a bulk change and people are finding bugs.
