OK, go back a step here - on XFS or other filesystem types?
I am in the process of cleaning up the XFS write path here,
[root@lord /xfs]# dd of=big if=/dev/zero seek=8192 bs=1024k count=8
8+0 records in
8+0 records out
[root@lord /xfs]# ls -l big
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 8598323200 Oct 10 10:26 big
Works for me.
