I've got kernel 2.4.4, with the test xfs patch applied.
The problem is i cannot mount an XFS filesystem with a label. Here is what
i did to create the filessytem and set the label (no errors)....

        mkfs.xfs /dev/hdd1

        xfs_admin -L bootfs /dev/hdd1

now if i add the following to my  /etc/fstab  and try to mount the
filesystem it says its not found...

        LABEL=bootfs     /tmp/test    xfs    defaults    1 1

Here is the error....

        [root@fluffy /mnt]# mount /tmp/test
        mount: no such partition found

If i try the exact same lines but using ext2fs it works, any ideas?

Any feedback would be very much appreciated!
