Some of the above might not refer directly to the final committed

not listed above that should be considered too.

Hi Mark, thanks for the list and clarifications.

But still some more questions ... who does the backporting for the
distros? SGI or the distros themselves?

Generally the distros, except for SGI storage platforms and SLES where
SGI has a contractural support agreement with Novell.

Is someone from Novell / SUSE / openSUSE reading here?

Andreas Gruenbacher is probably listening

When can we *expect* to have these patches backported? In one month?
Three months? More?

For SLES, within a week. For OpenSuSE presumeably the SLES folks will
follow-up with OpenSuSE, but I can't predict when. For Fedora, Eric
Sandeen.  For RHEL (on anything except SGI storage platforms), nobody
since XFS is not supported directly by Redhat. For all other distros
and server & NAS vendors, it's entirely up to their maintainers and
respective support organization - generally they track a release or
two behind kernel.org.

Cheers
