Hmm, well we've been using XFS on software raid's with a 2.4.29 kernel on roughly 10 NFS servers for over a year now without problems. Though we are rolling them up to FC4 as they become available.

There were more stack reductions after that. Which is -not- to say that you -will- have problems with the above... all depends on what you're doing. But Nathan did more stack work after I put that rpm out.

In my case, I would want to do NFS serving with XFS file systems - some of the servers may use software raid as well.

AFAIK, the 2.4 kernel series XFS CVS still doesn't do NFS service of XFS filesystems.
