This looks rather like you missed something in backporting the
patch, the alloc_inode code is different between the kernel the
patch was intended for, and the one you used it one. You have to
look at what the patch does to the kernel, and what the base kernel
looks like, then make your kernel do the same thing. Some of the
changes needed by xfs have been incorporated into the base code
since 2.4.20 and hence are not present in the patch anymore.
Hmm, I thought Release-1.3.0 was released for both 2.4.20 and 2.4.21 ?
Thus, I don't understand your comment here. IMHO there would have been no need
for any "backports" ...
btw. ftp://oss.sgi.com seems to be alive, but i get "permission denied", when
trying to access projects/xfs
Thanks for clarification.
