For the uninitiated :) This applies on top of:
Apply my patch & build it with make... you'll need xfsprogs,
xfsprogs-devel, and xfsprogs-qa-devel (or make install-dev, make
install-qa from the xfsprogs tarball)* A few other standard devel
packages like e2fsprogs-devel, acl-devel, attr-devel, libaio-devel are
edit a local.config file in the top level dir:
TEST_DEV=/dev/sdb1 # device containing TEST PARTITION
TEST_DIR=/mnt/test # mount point of TEST PARTITION
SCRATCH_DEV=/dev/sdb3 # device containing SCRATCH PARTITION
SCRATCH_MNT=/mnt/scratch # mount point for SCRATCH PARTITION
mkfs.ext4 the $TEST_DEV
./check -ext4 -g generic
*another TODO is probably to make ./configure cope with lack of at least
the xfsprogs-qa-devel headers. There's still some work to make this
cleaner/easier but this at least gets things going.
