Description of problem:
I have installed taroon-beta1 for testing inclusive all up2date packages.
After starting make menuconfig in /usr/src/linux-2.4/ i saw in filesystems that
xfs filesystem supported (selectable as module or buildin).
After a look in the kernel-source-tree /usr/src/linux-2.4/fs/ i didnt found a
folder xfs which holds the xfs source files.
After compile the kernel it has still no xfs support.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /usr/src/linux-2.4
2. make menuconfig
3. go in filesystems and select XFS Support
Actual Results: You can recompile the kernel but it has still no xfs support.
Expected Results: A kernel that support xfs filesystem so I can make partitions
und format with the xfs filesystem.
XFS won't be included in final product.
The misleading XFS config option has been removed from the tree.
