- From end-user's POV, this infamous XFS behavior is somewhat
taken as XFS's inferiority compared to other filesystems.
Even with "bad" applications (ex. firefox), this rarely happens
on others, so regardless of what's on the FAQ, people logically
concludes that the fault belongs to XFS anyway.
So, what is the correct way to do IO?
Is what firefox (and other bad apps) doing is so obvious(ly buggy),
that it'll be acknowledged as a bug once reported? Or is it simply
a mismatch between application expectation and XFS behavior,
requiring a non-(obvious|generic) fix?
Although I'm not a filesystem developer, I'm pretty impressed with
XFS and willing to file a report/patch to those "buggy" apps if the
issue is explainable to other app developers.
