I would like to begin testing xfs with lids (www.lids.org) and rtlinux
(www.rtlinux.com) to see if the inclusion of lids will play nicely with xfs,
and if both methods of creating acls will be interchangeable (i.e, can lidsadm
modify chacl created acl's) and rtlinux, to see if the realtime section's
performance could be made truly 'realtime'. I'd like other's thoughts on this,
as I am not a programmer, and I can barely read code, so
as to tell whether or not these projects would or should work together.
The realtime section could also be marked at least 'experimental' in the cvs
tree, since it does build quite well, and having to add 'CONFIG_XFS_RT' to
.config by hand would be a lot easier if it would just be made a regular
(albeit experimental) option. It does work. lmdd is the only program that I
have been able to use to open inodes with a realtime flag though (thanks steve
Any input on this would be greatly appreciated.
P.S: I know that GRIO is not a real possibility for 2.4, but is it being
thought of as a 2.5 kernel subject at least?
