The stock SuSE 8.0 kernel has the bug where xfsrestore does not bring back ACLs.

If you care about ACLs, then it is a big bug.

I have downloaded and installed the SuSE experimental kernel from


and I have not had any problems yet.  It does have the xfsrestore bug fixed.

I gather that this is equivalent to a rawhide kernel from Redhat, so it is not 
recommended for production use.
