XFS In Linux 4.4 Isn't Too Exciting

Written by Michael Larabel in Linux Storage on 12 November 2015 at 09:56 AM EST. 3 Comments
Dave Chinner has now sent in the XFS file-system updates for the Linux 4.4 kernel.

The XFS file-system updates aren't too exciting this round with only one major feature being the per-mount operation statistics that are exposed via sysfs. Other XFS changes for Linux 4.4 are various fixes, memory allocation failure message improvements, an fdsatasync optimization, and other random clean-ups.

The XFS Linux 4.4 pull request can be viewed here. The file-system updates for the Linux 4.4 merge window haven't been too exciting, but at least there are other kernel changes to get excited about.

Linux 4.4-rc1 is expected this weekend and will mark the end of the feature merge window.
