We maintain a CVS tree of xfs-dev on oss. It's slightly different to mainline
linux as it contains patches to include kdb and dmapi.


From the web page:

Set the CVSROOT environment variable.
 $ export CVSROOT=':pserver:cvs@xxxxxxxxxxx:/cvs'
 (for sh, bash, ksh, or similar shells)
 $ setenv CVSROOT  :pserver:cvs@xxxxxxxxxxx:/cvs
 (for csh or tcsh shells)

Login to the CVS server (this only needs to be done ONCE, not every time you 
access CVS).
$ cvs login
 (the password is "cvs")

Now grab the XFS source tree(s) of interest:
 $ cvs checkout linux-2.6-xfs
 $ cvs checkout xfs-cmds

Subsequently, you can checkout new code using:
 $ cvs update -d
