I tried to find any problems but I couldn't. My setup is stock RH7.1/XFS
Kernel with devfs enabled. Soft RAID 5 and LVM on top of it, containing
several partitions with xfs,reiserfs and ext2. I extended and reduced
the ext2 partition several times and I growed the xfs partition 10 times
with absolutely no problem. I think it is not a beta6/beta7 problem but
something else inside XFS?
