In September the Linux 2.6.31 kernel was finally released, including another last minute XFS fix for the swapext (defragmentation) compat ioctl handler. The final patch from 2.6.30 to 2.6.31 shows the following impressive diffstat for XFS: 55 files changed, 1476 insertions(+), 2269 deletions(-) The 2.6.32 merge window started with a large XFS merge that included changes to the inode allocator, and a few smaller fixes. New versions of the sync and time stamp fixes as well as the event tracing support have been posted in September but not yet merged into the XFS development tree and/or mainline. On the userspace side a large patch series to reduce the memory usage in xfs_repair to acceptable levels was posted, but not yet merged. A new xfs_df shell script to measure use of the on disk space was posted but not yet merged pending some minor review comments and a missing man page. In addition we saw the usual amount of smaller fixes and cleanups. Also this month Felix Blyakher resigned from his post as XFS maintainer and handed off to Alex Elder.
