i just recently converted a machine to use xfs on all partitions sans
the only thing i really dislike about it is all the spam from the
kernel when the filesystems are mounted:
Start mounting filesystem: ide0(3,5)
Ending clean XFS mount for filesystem: ide0(3,5)
.... and so on ....
when you have several filesystems (i prefer to keep / /var /home and
/usr split) this is rather messy. I also prefer the old axiom of `No
news is good news' that is, if the filesystem mounts without errors,
and was clean, i don't need to be told that.
so my suggestion is to eliminate the `Start mounting filesystem...'
message altogether (its useless IMHO) and eliminate the `Ending clean
mount' instead only display a (single) message if filesystem recovery
perhaps make a mount option, verbose, if some people prefer to see all
these messages on filesystem mount.
note i have debug mode turned off in my kernel config.
