It just isn't :-( we've submitted (most of) it to Alan Cox and his kernel is
*much* more up-to-date than Linus'. I don't know just why the patches haven't
been accepted by Linus. He is apparently happy to completely replace the VM but
won't fix some fairly serious bugs elsewhere...bizarre.

I wouldn't like to claim it's an XFS bug as I haven't had a close look at their
patches. I do know that they include some LVM patches in their distribution so
it's certainly worth asking them nicely to upgrade them I suppose.

Feel free to quote my email..I don't think I wrote anything actionable :-)
