What exactly is your plans on integration of XFS with the official kernel sourcesand/or the major Linux dists? I'm a bit concerned about the following:
The FAQ explains that.

RedHat deserves the right to withhold from merging in a relatively intrusive patch. You don't just add complicated filesystems every day.
We're currently using XFS on a 180Gb RAID volume, by the way, and everything looksgood so far.
It does work, and extremely well in my own case. But that does not mean it will automatically get inserted in the mainstream kernel. We are working on it, but it will take some time to resolve all the items that linus asks for in a patch.
Cheers Seth -- Seth Every program has two purposes one for which it was written and another for which it wasn't I use the last kind.
