Hi everyone,

I packaged an xfs kernel module for EL4 (and clones) for myself and
thought I'd make it available to others.  It's for the current kernel
(2.6.9-11.EL).  The good news is that you can use other (Axel's) kernel
modules with it and a stock kernel. No rebuilding is necessary.  The
potential downside is that Redhat's (both FC and EL) kernel uses the 4k
kernel stacks which has caused problems for some running xfs over md
raid and/or lvm and/or nfs.  I've been using it on a raid 0 volume over
nfs for about a week now on my dedicated backend without any incident,
YMMV.  If anyone's interested you can find it here:
