RHEL 5.4: Now shipping XFS

Wow, it’s about time!

Sources tell me that RHEL 5.4 comes with XFS support. This is good news for all those folks wanting to use filesystems larger than 16TB and not trusting ext4 with their data (I couldn’t blame them). As far as I know, these unfortunate souls have been told to use GFS2 if they wanted a RH supported fs that did more than 16TB. (It’s worth mentioning that ext3 had a 8TB limit until about two years ago, when it got fixed up to support whopping 16TB.)
