That's funny, I actually look at that last night, but since I moved  
from i386 to x86_64, I only looked at the kernel-xen i386.config file  
in the kernel SRPM and saw that CONFIG_JFS_FS=m. Now that I look in  
the x86_64 kernel, it is not set. I'm going to try and rebuild as  
well.. just for the heck of it.

Thanks Johnny!
