just updated the kernel on my ppc machine yesterday - worked all fine
so far ... that i tried the kio and kiocluster options on the ppc too
and ran into problems: as soon as i write to the fs it detects an io
error and shuts down ... thus a few questions:

* am i right in assuming that the kio stuff does not contain any
  arch specific parts so it should - in principle - work also on
  the pcc which would leave endian or gcc issues as a possible
  reason for the problem?

* what is the state of XFS on sparc (also big endian)? - if it
  works there: do the kio and kiocluster options work on sparc?

* does anyone have an idea off-mind what might be the reson for
  this? ... i'll turn on all the debugging options and see if i
  get any more information out of it this evening i think

a lot of thanks in advance
