Get one of the kernel-module-xfs SRPMS (doesn't matter which one, they
are the same), install it and then edit the kernel-module-xfs.spec
file and comment out the line:

%patch6 -p1

(or, use the patch to the spec file attached)

and then build the RPM using something like:

rpmbuild --target x86_64 --define "kernel_topdir /lib/modules/2.6.9-34/build" \

see: ftp://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/testing/RHEL4/README

I was given these instructions by Eric Sandeen @ SGI

I've been using 2.6.9-34 with XFS compiled in this way ...
