Does anyone know when/how XFS will go into 2.4/2.5?

A lot of kernel developers tell me that XFS needs to dump the pagebuf
and other layers on top of the VM and VFS layers.


I've gotten XFS to work with 2.4.18-pre7 w/ rml's preempt and lockbreak
patch and the O(1) new scheduler + wli's patch cluster. XFS runs fine
without errors. I have not seen corruption yet.  I removed riel's rmap
patch because it seems to break XFS somehow. rmap12a completely changes
vmscan.c which blows up XFS ;/

I'm going to be using XFS's testing programs from the CVS tree and
report the results.
