I known xfs is rather slow when deleting large number of files (above

Is there a known issue here ?
Try using 2.4.18 XFS CVS. This tree has the asynchronous delete path and
that alone might give your delete speed a nice boost. I won't say this will
fix your problem but it will make a difference.
Every program has two purposes one for which
it was written and another for which it wasn't
I use the last kind.
