The xfsdump packages provide several utilities for managing XFS file systems,including xfsrestore and xfsdump.This update fixes the following bug:* Previously, the value of the nrh_t byte offset was set to 32 bits. As aconsequence, the xfsrestore command failed with an assertion message if it wasexecuted on a dumped XFS file system that contained millions of files. With thisupdate, the value of nrh_t has been changed to 64 bits. This allows xfsrestoreto handle a significantly larger amount of directory entries, and thus preventsthe described problem.
