We only have 1.2 patches for 2.4.19 or the 2.4.18-rh. So if you want recent
XFS bits you might try the CVS tree.
I'm sure some 1.2 patches might turn up for 2.4.20 when it's released. I
don't know if the XFS diff between 2.4.19 -> 2.4.20 is large though. You
could try the 2.4.19 xfs 1.2pre3 patch against a 2.4.20-rc and see if
something fails to patch.
I have a number of servers with 1.2pre3 out there which seem to do fine.
They are not heavily loaded, but no failures yet. You might need to check
out the patch for the broken tg3 driver in 2.4.18-17.7.x 2.4.18-18.7.x.
Version 1.2 of the tg3 driver is the latest.
It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
