See ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/download/patches/2.4.17/README.  To
patch other trees you need XFS split into its components which is what
you get in patches/2.4.*.

It is quite a bit of work to take the CVS tree and separate the various
components, it has to be done by hand.  These snapshots are only
created for major kernel releases and when we believe that XFS is
stable on that release, they are not up to date.  For automated patch
dumps, fetch all of XFS CVS and diff it against a pristine
Marcelo/Linus tree.
