    Subject[patch 02/11] fix XFS_QUOTA for modular XFS
    From: Dimitri Puzin <>

    This patch by Dimitri Puzin submitted through kernel Bugzilla #5514
    fixes the following issue:

    Cannot build XFS filesystem support as module with quota support. It
    works only when the XFS filesystem support is compiled into the kernel.
    Menuconfig prevents from setting CONFIG_XFS_FS=m and CONFIG_XFS_QUOTA=y.

    How to reproduce: configure the XFS filesystem with quota support as
    module. The resulting kernel won't have quota support compiled into

    Fix: Changing the fs/xfs/Kconfig file from tristate to bool lets you
    configure the quota support to be compiled into the XFS module. The
    Makefile-linux-2.6 checks only for CONFIG_XFS_QUOTA=y.
