Experiences porting XFS to Linux and attempting to cache filesystem metadata in the pagecache

The XFS filesystem code on Irix consists of about 112 thousand lines of code (including comments). We will talk about what happened when we tried to move this to the Linux kernel. Just to make things more interested we also decided to implement filesystem meta data caching in the page cache instead of the buffer cache.
