SubjectRe: [PATCH 0/39] Ocfs2 updates for 2.6.28
Hi Mark,
do you see my 2 patches for xattr?
http://oss.oracle.com/pipermail/ocfs2-devel/2008-September/002839.html
this is pretty straightforward and I think it can be committed with it.
http://oss.oracle.com/pipermail/ocfs2-devel/2008-September/002839.html
this is the new support for empty bucket.

Regards,
Tao
