Hence you have a 2.3TB XFS filesystem? You need inode64. The side warning
"performance sucks" is very true.  In particular, if you create a bunch of
files in the same directory, without inode64 XFS will scatter the extents
all over the disk rather than trying to allocate them next to each other
(possibly not a problem if you're only storing mysql data chunks though)
