It is not. It is still in development, and even if a 2.6.0 is
released I just think back to 2.4.0, just because it is called stable
doesn't make it stable.
I am sure it will need at least half a year for the major distros
(RedHat, Novell/SuSe, Mandrake) to pick it up. Perhaps some others more
earlier (Gentoo who knows), some never (Debian), but still, in the mean
time it is always a bit tricky with kernel updats here. Either I patch
it with the SGI and might have troubles with other patches, or I take
the -ac (which didn't work last time because of some driver problems
with the HP/Compaq Raid) or I take the -ck which is a Desktop patchset
and not a server patchset ...
Well in just my opinion XFS should go into 2.4 (and not only because ALL
other FS are in there already). 2.4 will be the main kernel for quite
some more time and always come up with the argument "but 2.6 is so
ready" doesn't help ...
