Apply in the usual way, this one is against 2.4.21 stock, so it includes both BenH patches and the XFS patches. The XFS patches are: SGI XFS snapshot-2.4.21-2003-06-23_01:45_UTC as opposed to my last effort with XFS 1.1 (i think).
This patch is pretty similar (if not identical) to what Lashi cooked up. We’re both running this patch (or at least kernels based on it) and things are going well.
My firewire doesn’t really work – but his does. hrrmmm….. haven’t had time to go though the problem yet.
