Naah. The right question is: "how can we convince Linus to include XFS
in the mainstream kernel?"

And the answer is quite simple: you guys are all using XFS, right? I
guess most of you know that it works just perfect on busy servers, under
high system load.
Well, go to lkml (Linux Kernel Mailing List), send a nice message
explaining how stable is XFS in production, and asking for inclusion.
If a reasonable amount of people will do that on the list, it's bound to
get included.

It's not just Red Hat, it's Linux. ;-)
