Thanks Erik!

I have updated the ATrpms' kernels for FC1 to sync with your src.rpm,
e.g. ATrpms goes XFS 1.3.1 (previously it was 1.3.0).

Well, not a really big difference, but at least SCO cannot sue me
anymore ;)

I'd be interested in minimizing [1] kernel patches and building XFS
out of the tree (so that the needed patches could be pushed easier
into RH/ac kernels). I won't have time until the end of the year, but
if anyone manages to do so, I will gladly repackage his/her recipe
into kernel and xfs-kmdl rpms.

[1] minimizing as in full functional together with the XFS kernel
    modules, not minimizing as in castrated-without-acls ;)
