*Modified User Domain : sgi.com       *Description :
Running lilo to install a kernel from an xfs filesystem does not
work. It generates a corrupt lilo map file - booting the system
results in a prompt of LIL- and a hung machine which requires a
rescue disk to get running again.

Lilo installs some code in the boot area of a disk which is used
to indicate where the kernel lives on disk. When running it uses
the FIBMAP ioctl to determine the disk location of the kernel 
this is recorded into a map file. The location of the map file
is then recorded into the boot area of the disk.
