Thread-topic: open from kernel
Yes, i have XFS fileystem support. I am able to open the file, but my read 
fails. The operations in user-space works.
I think i am missing something before calling read. (Note: i am doing 
set_fs(KERNEL_DS), before calling read.

        You need a kernel with XFS filesystem support to be able read files from
        XFS filesystems.
        if you "cat /proc/filesystems" does it contain the xfs string?
        It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
