I would like to see SGI's port of the XFS filesystem come in the
default kernel along with having an option in the installer to create
an XFS partition.  Many people use XFS and find it to be among the
best filesystems for Linux, most vendors already have default support
for it from the box.  RedHat/Fedora needs this as well.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

This has only been in the 2.4.24pre repository for two days. It's had
hardly any testing there, and is not suitable for addition for the FC1
kernel at this time.

It's likely you'll have to wait for FC2 for this one.

I'm sorry, I meant to ask if FC2 will have support for it.  Thought I
had mentioned that previously.
