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
I'd be interested in minimizing  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.
 minimizing as in full functional together with the XFS kernel
modules, not minimizing as in castrated-without-acls ;)
