Well the problem is the older kernel XFS driver is
buggy to such a large extent that there is data loss
even for data on rest should a power loss occur.

With a newer version back port I can preserve the
kernel version change since it becomes far more
reaching to the other kernel components and they have
to move, to which ..... there is strong reservation.

Hope this gives you the perspective.

Thanks,
