xfsdump currently relies on dmapi, which is somewhat pointless in a FC distro,
since there is no kernel support. Russell is looking into making an xfsdump
which does not have a hard dependency on dmapi...

condtionilze the need for dmapi in xfsdump
I have submitted the above patch upstream.
I have also got the start of the spec file and Make file for the cvs
xfsdump-2.2.42 has been released which probably incorporate your patches.
- Rework code to remove the DMAPI build and run-time dependency.
Should I provide spec file, or maybe you have already made it?
Ahh cool I've been waiting for Nathan to push that tarball.
Spec file and src rpm updated
I'll maintain xfsdump.src.rpm as a link to the latest.
Is there any plans including xfsdump in FC, if not it's a good candidate for FE?
