I was able to get a couple nice runs over xfs with the 2.4.4-xfs kernel
built from the development cvs tree. I'm attaching a file with some
comparisons to reiserfs and ext2. Thanks to all for the hints & tips.
I did get a few more
__alloc_pages: 0-order allocation failed.
from xfs during the 3rd test, but it continued and completed ok. The
kernel did not hang as before with 2.4.2. Total test time for 3 runs of
"iozone -s 4000m" was about 5 hrs.
