Hi all!

First of all, I want to thank you the great job you do to Linux!
Linux is a great OS/kernel and XFS is my favorite FS since I tried it.

Problems:

When will be the XFS patch integrated to main tree?

I'm really fed up with trying to get linux-2.4.9 + acXX or preXX + xfs
together.

I'm using XFS from notebooks to DB servers and it's really hard to compile
a good and fresh kernel.

Now I currently have some machines like 2.4.10-pre-xfs and so on.
I want to have some features from -ac tree and/or the latest pre kernels,
but patching fails, I have to do things by hand with the .rej files, and I
can make mistakes so I have a kernel in the notebook which handles the
ps/2 mouse in X very bad (the cursor jumps on big use I/O or CPU, maybe
sy with the interrupts is wrong.)

I know it takes time and resources, but if once XFS is in the main tree as
Reiser is in (maybe other folks wants ext3 to get in too) -
this problem will be eleminated, and I could use ie. the usb/SCSI module
hp scanner with xfs and dvd playback too.

thanks
