I have applied Andre's patch from http://linuxdiskcert.org on top of
linux-2.4.19-pre7. Then I applied the XFS patches for 2.4.18
(unfortunately, the XFS-enabled kernel from the SGI-CVS is at 2.4.18
also, so it doesn't contain Ande's patch).

There is one reject in include/linux/sysctl.h I don't know how to fix:

***************
*** 140,145 ****
VM_PAGERDAEMON=8, /* struct: Control kswapd behaviour */
VM_PGT_CACHE=9, /* struct: Set page table cache parameters */
VM_PAGE_CLUSTER=10, /* int: set number of pages to swap together */
VM_MIN_READAHEAD=12, /* Min file readahead */
VM_MAX_READAHEAD=13 /* Max file readahead */
};
--- 140,148 ----
VM_PAGERDAEMON=8, /* struct: Control kswapd behaviour */
VM_PGT_CACHE=9, /* struct: Set page table cache parameters */
VM_PAGE_CLUSTER=10, /* int: set number of pages to swap together */
+ #if defined(CONFIG_XFS_FS) || defined(CONFIG_XFS_FS_MODULE)
+ VM_PAGEBUF=11, /* struct: Control pagebuf parameters */
+ #endif
VM_MIN_READAHEAD=12, /* Min file readahead */
VM_MAX_READAHEAD=13 /* Max file readahead */
};

Can anybody who knows the XFS code please tell what the alias VM_PAGEBUF
in this enumeration is used for and how I could fix this?

The original 2.4.49-pre7 code seems to define another alias for 11 in this enum:

/* CTL_VM names: */
enum
{
VM_SWAPCTL=1, /* struct: Set vm swapping control */
VM_SWAPOUT=2, /* int: Linear or sqrt() swapout for hogs */
VM_FREEPG=3, /* struct: Set free page thresholds */
VM_BDFLUSH=4, /* struct: Control buffer cache flushing */
VM_OVERCOMMIT_MEMORY=5, /* Turn off the virtual memory safety limit */
VM_BUFFERMEM=6, /* struct: Set buffer memory thresholds */
VM_PAGECACHE=7, /* struct: Set cache memory thresholds */
VM_PAGERDAEMON=8, /* struct: Control kswapd behaviour */
VM_PGT_CACHE=9, /* struct: Set page table cache parameters */
VM_PAGE_CLUSTER=10, /* int: set number of pages to swap together */
VM_MAX_MAP_COUNT=11, /* int: Maximum number of active map areas */
VM_MIN_READAHEAD=12, /* Min file readahead */
VM_MAX_READAHEAD=13, /* Max file readahead */
};

Any hints?

Thanks for your help,
Robert
