I don't understand the question.  They ship kernel patches and they ship 
pre-patched RedHat kernel-source rpms.  What more do you want?

Dear SGI,

As a linux user, I really appreciate your efforts to port your high quality 
filesystem XFS to linux as open source. However, I cannot understand your 
release scheme. You must understand that people will just want to download a 
tarball, `patch` the patches, and `./configure;make all;make install`. I 
sincerely feel that lots more people would give this fine fs a try if you 
would find the time to release XFS as a tarball, which people could just 
install by applying a patch to the kernel source, and compile by issuing a 
'make all' on the command prompt.
Just my 2$...

Anyways, keep up the good work.
