The aforementioned shit-flinging monkeys (see Ryan) managed to delay fixing my travel long enough that the seats disappeared. I get to fly home at 0600 tomorrow. I am booking my own travel from now on.
I sorta neglected to make my lease payment (oops) before I went away. I hope my keys still work.
On the XFS front, I've checked in code to make separate log devices work on Linux. Now I'm busy chasing after some 64-bit-unclean code that's breaking files larger than 4 gig, while trying to find the source of some mysterious leaking inodes. It smells very much like a race condition in unmount.
