could someone please tell me if XFS is trustworthy in the latest 2.6.16? There have been some bugs:

These are the same problem. 2.6.16 is unaffected.

want a stable kernel and 2.6.16 seems to fit all my needs.

For XFS, its goodness. 2.6.18 will be good too, and


If you have run 2.6.17 to or early 2.6.18-rc? however; please run a xfs_repair v.2.6.10; because the corruption may/will have already taken place and a silent time bomb may be waiting. Three machines already died with symptom of the corruption on kernels that no longer have the problem.
