When xfs_support was merged back into the xfs directory, the dmapi module
build was broken.  You're missing symbols for things like sv_wait and kmem_*
stuff.

I'm working on it from time-to-time.

At the very least, this pointed out a few more dependencies between XFS and
DMAPI that I can work on.  Someday DMAPI won't need XFS...
