Hi Jason - 

What symptoms are you seeing?  Also, any chance you can try the 1.2
code?  (although I understand that 1.1 may be in production now).  We
did fix a last-minute problem in 1.2 which involved remount, readonly
not flushing everything to disk.

XFS does use it's own "pagebuf" system for metadata, and it also uses
delayed allocation on normal buffers, these are both a bit different
from other Linux filesystems.  However, sync and remount should work as

Send us a box and we'll do some testing here.  ;-)
