We are using CentOS 4.4 along with the RHEL 4 compatible kernel modules
According to the CentOS mailing list, the person at SGI who had been
backporting the xfs code for RHEL4/CentOS4 has left the company.
Are there any plans to continue this work? It seems like we are getting
bit by this bug: http://oss.sgi.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=410 but it
doesn't look like the fix has been backported to the RHEL4 kernel

I installed it on a different system and the modinfo for xfs still gives
the same information:
description: SGI-XFS CVS-2004-10-17_05:00_UTC
Has the module been updated since 2.6.9-34.0.1?
The kernel-module-xfs code hasn't changed in a while - that date stamp
is incorrect, but the code is more like a year old.
Unfortunately, the person at SGI that packaged up the code in the XFS
module for RHEL4/CentOS4 no longer works for SGI (I believe he now
works for RedHat).
So, I guess, unless someone else at SGI (or elsewhere) back ports the
more recent XFS code to the RHEL4 kernel, you are out of luck ...
Or you could use an up to date kernel.org kernel instead ...
