Two ways you can go about it. First you download the vanilla 2.4.4 (or the
patch to bump up your kernel tree to 2.4.4 from 2.4.2), then grab the
latest XFS CVS patch:

<ftp://linux-xfs.sgi.com/projects/xfs/download/patches/linux-2.4.4-xfs-cvs-05152001.patch.gz>

To patch your kernel I've found a number of ways, but I personally use
this one:

 o Create a directory /usr/src/linux-2.4.4/
 o Extract your 2.4.4 kernel into /usr/src/linux-2.4.4/linux/
 o While in /usr/src/ do a
        cat linux-2.4.4-xfs-cvs-05152001.patch.gz | gunzip | patch -p0
 o ln -s linux-2.4.4/linux/ linux

Alternatively, you can get the entire development tree via CVS or CVSup.
This should give you the Linux kernel 2.4.4 with the required XFS stuff
updated to the last check-in by the developers. The benefit of this is
that you get the latest fixes and performance updates checked in. The
latest patch downloadable by the first method I gave was a snapshot done
on 15 May 2001.
