Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Storage on 10 February 2015 at 09:23 AM EST. 4 Comments
The XFS changes targeting the Linux 3.20 kernel have been published, but this time around the file-system work isn't particularly exciting.

The changes queued by Dave Chinner for the XFS file-system in Linux 3.20 include:

- Rework of the super-block logging infrastructure and XFS_IOCTL_SETXATR implementation.


- Prep work for block-based PNFS support.

- Various bug-fixes and clean-ups.

More details on these XFS file-system changes can be found via this pull request.
