2.4 stable kernel maintainer Marcelo Tosatti recently announced that XFS has been merged into the 2.4 kernel. He explains, "Christoph reviewed [the]
XFS patch which changed generic code, and it was stripped down later to a set of changes which don't modify the code behaviour (except for a few
bugfixes which should have been included separately anyway) and are pretty obvious." In other words, during his recent review of the XFS code [story],
Christoph Hellwig determined that after a few changes it was safe to merge.
