So how is this any different than all the other stuff RedHat adds to the
RedHat kernels now.  XFS is good enough for Linus to include in 2.6 .  
Many are using it for production work , it is not some just released
product. If it can get into this new RHL project then that would be great.  
It will give a head start to XFS before 2.6 .
