(Rusell & I have been discussing this one - just wanted to
keep the info central)
If a buffer is allocated with a certain size then the actual
number of bytes to read/write is set to a smaller value with
XFS_BUF_SET_COUNT, pagebuf ignores the small value and
reads/writes the whole buffer.
This only occurs in XFS in the log code, specifically in
xlog_bread, xlog_bwrite, xlog_write_log_records and

sigh: Last sentence should read "_fear_ of repercussions".
It seems to work well.
