Well, I'm just suggesting testing it for now, not necessarily
upgrading your product.  Would just be good to know if the bug you
are seeing persists upstream on ppc.

You can look at the changelogs on kernel.org, for instance:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v2.6/ChangeLog-2.6.32

Or with git, git log --pretty-oneline fs/xfs

There isn't a great bug <-> commit <-> kernelversion mapping, I guess.
