I put in a bit of time awhile back to get the largest of these
issues sorted out - perhaps (almost certainly) RHEL4 is an older
2.6 kernel than the one containing those changes.
As other cases pop up (with a reproducible test case please, and
no stacking drivers in the way too :), we slowly iron them out..
its not exactly top of the priority list though.
Choose SLES9 over RHEL4 if you want an "Enterprise" kernel with
decent XFS support.
