7.275. xfsdump

Updated xfsdump packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The xfsdump packages provide several utilities for managing XFS file systems, including xfsrestore and xfsdump.

Bug Fix

With Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.4, XFS has been enhanced to allow the use of the 32-bit project quota ID feature. However, the top 16 bits of a 32-bit project quota ID were not properly saved and restored using the xfsdump and xfsrestore utilities. This caused the data to be saved and restored with an incorrect 16-bit project quota ID. With this update, the underlying source code has been fixed so that all 32 bits of the project quota ID are properly saved and restored by xsfdump and xfsrestore.
All users of xfsdump are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
