So I find my self with a bit of extra time to actually try and make 
progress on XFS for FreeBSD again.

I've started the process of essentially reporting xfs to FreeBSD,  (alot 
of stuff has changed in XFS)

It is still quite a ways off but I hope to have mount and read support 
working again shortly.

The lastest work can be found at.


I do realize that I will never have enough time to fully support XFS but 
I hope to at least get it off the ground
again and hopefully build some interest.
