I think I nailed the bug Friday, but my testbox ratted out on me (time
to get an X10 relay), so I haven't been able to verify.  I'll try it
as soon as I get to the office.  Barring new bugs, I'll check in the

If throttling still doesn't work correctly, I'll probably check in the
MD patches anyway and then fix it later.  It's not really a problem
unless you run your RAID in degraded mode.

I have prepared an upgrade to 0.9 for xfsprogs this weekend.  I'll

Due to the frequent LVM IOP protocol changes, both userland and kernel
need to be at the same version, so I ponder upgrading TOT to 0.9beta6
