Not that I know off.

People have allready tested XFS on Sparc sparc64 alpha PPC and S390.

So far there is positive feedback about the sparc alpha PP and sparc64
ports.

You will have to try it. AFAIK the SGI people don't test XFS on the mips
boxes. The kernel source is mostly compatible with the newer compilers out
there like 2.95.3 and u.

I think you will need to merge the mips and XFS CVS tree and edit some
arch specific files like the syscalls. If you also want to use ACLs make
sure you have the latest xfsprogs tools.

Cheers
