I've been searching through the archives, trying to figure out
what the README in oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/download/patches/
means, and haven't been able to nail it down. Quote:
...Do not use this patch unless you are willing stay
up-to-date with "current".
As I understand it from reading earlier mail on the subject, the
-cvs- patches are just snapshots of the CVS tree taken every
once in a while, with no testing, etc. I _do_ want to stay up
to date with "current" XFS code, for the most part - I want the
fixes since 1.0.1 - but as I understand it, I _don't_ want this
patch, since it's probably not stable and may not even compile.
...Patches to take a vanilla linux 2.4.x tree to an xfs
But what does "an xfs capable kernel" mean in this case? Do the
patches produce a kernel with XFS-1.0.1? Or do they incorporate
fixes that have occured since then (which is what I want)?
