Hi!  I seem to have no luck in getting v8 of the pquota/uquota patchset
working and have it pass xfstests with flying colors.  Is v8 of the
pquota/gquota patchset sufficient to make the new separate pquota/gquota
bits work?  Or is it an incremental patchset?

Hi Michael,

I will post the user level changes that accompanies these changes.

With those changes you can do a new mkfs and use pquota and gquota




As for the rest of your issues, I'll have to retest very slowly using your new userspace patches, documenting every step in order. It will also require before/after runs of xfstests.

I do not know what your patches do for filesystems that already had quota on them, so I ask you to check one thing. It looked like the result of the normal `quota` command was having issues. On my root filesystem that was mounted uquota only, the following is the normal behavior (as an ordinary user):

mls:~$ quota
Disk quotas for user mls (uid 3001):
Filesystem blocks quota limit grace files quota limit grace
      /dev/sda1  165955  262144  327680            2345    8194   16384

However, before I switched out kernels here, such a command just left a blank, as if there was no quota there. If you would at that to your list of spot-check tests, that would be great. It might work fine for you. [For the same situation, `xfs_quota -c quota /` worked just fine.]

You're leading a blind man in the dark, so I thank you for your patience.
