Isn't this typically the type of module that would go into the
"kernel-unsupported" sub-package? I'd be very happy to be able to run xfs
at my own risk, being able to do it easily, and keeping a default Red Hat
So how is this any different than all the other stuff RedHat adds to the
RedHat kernels now. XFS is good enough for Linus to include in 2.6 .
Many are using it for production work , it is not some just released
product. If it can get into this new RHL project then that would be great.
It will give a head start to XFS before 2.6 .
