Updated xfsprogs packages that fix four bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The xfsprogs packages contain a set of commands to use the XFS file system, including mkfs.xfs.
Prior to this update, certain file names could cause the xfs_metadump utility to become suspended when generating obfuscated names. This update modifies the underlying code so that xfs_metadump now works as expected.
Prior to this update, the allocation group size (agsize) was computed incorrectly during mkfs for some filesystem sizes. As a consequence, creating file systems could fail if file system blocks within an allocation group (agblocks) were increased past the maximum. This update modifies the computing method so that agblocks are no longer increased past the maximum.
Prior to this update, the xfs_quota utility failed with the error message "xfs_quota: cannot initialise path table: No such file or directory" if an invalid xfs entry was encountered in the mtab. This update modifies the xfs_quota utility so that the xfs_quota utility now runs as expected.
Prior to this update, the xfs_quota utility reported that the project quota values were twice as high as expected. This update modifies the xfs_quota utility so that it now reports the correct values.
All users who use the XFS file system are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
