Andrew ... for the older kernels, you can get the SGI module here:

http://dev.centos.org/centos/4/testing/i386/RPMS/

(look for kernel-module-xfs and the kernel you want)

That is much more stable code than is in the 2.6.9 tree and it is
installable against the standard kernel.

I am waiting for SGI to provide updated code before I build for the
2.6.9-34.EL kernel.  When I get that code, I will produce a new and
improved XFS for the 4.3 kernel.

Thanks,
Johnny Hughes
