Oh, that's good news, thanks.
I just need to test the patch on a 32-bit O.S. now, but
I am having a difficult time building xfs-cmds/xfstests
on a CentOS 5 VM.
Does anyone have a recommendation for an O.S. I can use
to build and run the xfsqa test 078? It would be running
the 22.214.171.124 kernel with the patch in question, not the
stock distro kernel.
