Updated xfsprogs packages that fix several bugs are now available for Red HatEnterprise Linux 6.

The xfsprogs packages contain a set of commands to use the XFS file system,including the mkfs.xfs command to construct an XFS file system.This update fixes the following bugs:* Due to a bug in the underlying source code, an attempt to use the xfs_io”pwrite” command to write to a block device residing on an XFS file systemfailed with the following error:XFS_IOC_FSGEOMETRY: Inappropriate ioctl for device.This update applies a patch to fix this bug and the command no longer fails inthe described scenario. (BZ#1018751)* Previously, the thread local data were used incorrectly. As a consequence,when the xfs_repair utility was executed with the ag_stride option, the utilitycould terminate unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. The underlying sourcecode has been modified to fix this bug and xfs_repair no longer crashes in thedescribed situation. (BZ#1020438)* Under certain conditions, the xfs_fsr utility failed to reorganize files withSELinux attributes. With this update, a patch has been provided to address thisbug and xfs_fsr can successfully defragment files with SELinux attributes.(BZ#1024702)* When the sector size of the source file system was larger than 512 bytes, thexfs_copy utility could create a corrupted copy of that system. In addition, theutility exited with a non-zero return code in all cases, even if the operationwas successful. This update applies a patch to fix these bugs and the utilitynow works as expected. (BZ#1100107, BZ#1104956)Users of xfsprogs are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fixthese bugs.
