I have an update on the build problems I'm having in cmd/*. If I enter
(for example) cmd/xfsprogs and type make the build fails. But if I enter
each subdirectory of xfsprogs and type make everything builds fine. So
the problem seems to be with the top level Makefile building invalid
targets. I'll investigate and hopefully come up with the right answer.
I also thought I should mention that I am running xfs on a raid level 0
device (using the md driver). The XFS FAQ mentions that xfs hasn't been
tested with raid and that people using it should let folks know how it
works. The FAQ also says that xfs will not work with the md driver and
the kiobuf option enabled. Now I don't remember if the kiobuf option is
enabled, but xfs is working beautifully on md0. Any tests anyone would
like me to try? The data on md0 doesn't matter so no problem if I lose it
all (it would suck to lose stuff on the other devices though).
