I hope everyone on the reiserfs lists realizes how informal these
benchmarks are. If you want a real idea of how <foofs> performs, you've
got to talk with someone who knows a lot about foofs to make sure things

reiserfs acls are so fast, its like they aren't even there ;-)

In 2.4.4, the metadata flush time is the same as the bdflush metadata
interval (5 secs by default). Our bonnie++ numbers should be a little
worse for the file creation tests now.
