Consistent with our recent letter to the open source community
(http://oss.sgi.com/letter_100103.txt), SGI has removed and replaced a
trivial number of code segments in XFS that may arguably be related to UNIX
code. These changes are in three areas: macros used to define and
manipulate the extended inode mode bits (in xfs_vnode.h), macros for
filesystem quota operations (in dqblk_xfs.h), and the data copying function
uiomove()(in move.c). These revisions also required insignificant changes
to other files that interact with the revised code. We encourage you to
move promptly to this version of XFS.
This code is now available for download from our open source repository at
http://oss.sgi.com. Initially we have provided updated kernel patches for
recent 2.4 series kernels, updated user space tools, and an updated version
of the XFS 1.3 release. The CVS repositories for the 2.4 and 2.6 kernels are
also available. Please contact xfs-masters@xxxxxxxxxxx with any questions
about this XFS update.
