Yes, backporting just doest not suits for me. I am trying to dig into the code, but really dont know if that's going to be that easy. Thanks Eric for all the help.
W'll you know if I am able to fix this.

One other thought on the backporting side; RHEL5.4 now has xfs merged into a 2.6.18-ish kernel. There are still some other supporting bits in that kernel, it's hardly vanilla 2.6.18, but if you want to try a backport route it might be one option.

Testing an upstream kernel w/ your testcase in an emulator would also be a reasonable thing to do, I think.
