Is there a process for requesting a new feature in the default kernel. I have custom compiled a kernel and the new feature is just turning on support for xfs filesystems. I never like using hacks like ext4, but find keeping systems with my own kernel more difficult to keep up to date. This is mostly because the new kernel in the default image can't understand the hard drive with my root filesystem until I manually mount it and rebuild the kernel again. Am I explaining this well enough to get my point understood?
