I'd just like to add, for the record, that while I really do love XFS,
because of things like the above statement from Steve Lord, I really can't
use it on my production machines until it is tied into the regular kernel
It might be a bit extreme since you might need to patch your kernel to make
some hardware work.
Intergrating XFS in the mainstream kernel won't make the patching process
any easier. XFS interacts with the VM and will thus always require work.

for intergrating XFS into it.
In the mean time I am happily running XFS on my production servers with
good results and have had no (knock on wood) XFS related problems in the
