Hi Axel -
Well, the version strings have not been set up very well on the -pre releases.
The plan was to set them to the 1.2preX release number.
The CVS date is not very relevant anymore... the first pre1 kernel was
a clone of cvs at one point, but subsequent releases have taken bits
and pieces, but not all, of subsequent cvs changes.
The "minimal acl" fix is in pre3 for sure, probably in pre2.

fs/xfs/linux/xfs_version.h:#define XFS_VERSION_STRING "CVS-09/19/02:05"
Personally I very much liked the date format. For instance I wanted to know
whether the "problem with minimal acls on linux"-fix was part of it (it
What CVS date is 1.2pre2 based on?
