The good news is that the current rawhide kernel has commented out
that patch (named 1140 there). Unfortunatley there is no changelog
entry as to why and how this was done.

I played a bit with rawhide (which is still the same as severn's, I
think). Other than the _nolock patch the rest looked trivial. I
haven't got a complete build yet, but it looked quite promising (I'm
on vacation, so it will take me some time). Whoever cares to look at
the current bits can contact me in private.
I was told to better skip 1.3.0 and go straight for the CVS bits for
2.4.22, but I wouldn't like to desync from the XFS release points.
