ok - i nailed it down further - looks like it's not a problem with
XFS but more with the ide driver (ide-pmac.c) ... tried it with an
usb floppy drive (which uses usb-storage and thus an scsi layer)
and with this one it worked perfectly even with kio ... so it was
a false alarm in the direction of XFS (but maybe jens has an idea
what might be the reason for the kio stuff not working with
ide-pmac.c on ppc?)
