is kdb v1.8 against Redhat 7.1. There are no XFS dependencies in that

to resolve some patch failures.

It is a lot easier to start from that patch instead of trying to
convert a kdb patch from a standard kernel onto Redhat's kernel. RH
took patches from the -ac tree as well which really messed up kdb, it
took me several hours to work out whta RH had done to each file, and I
had all the kdb patches. AFAICR, the IKD patch in RH 7.1 does not fit
