Under what conditions should we be worried about XFS with a kernel
compiled with 4k stacks?
As we are lazy, we would prefer to run a stock fc3 kernel on dual Xeon
32bit with 3ware hardware SATA RAID - mostly accessed via NFS. No LVM,
no ACLs, no software RAID, so nothing too fancy.
Is this still asking for trouble?
If so, then it's not hard to recompile the fc3 kernel (or a stock
kernel) for 8k stacks, just we're not too sure how risky the default
fc3 setup is.
We're also thinking of running RHEL AS4 instead of fc3 (they are very
similar), but that definitely needs a recompile as XFS isn't included in
the default AS4 kernel :-/
