Is anyone here using XFS on Linux on the Alpha platform?
We've been testing both XFS and Reiserfs, and we always
get problems requiring xfs_repair during power-off tests (where
we intentionally kill power during disk writes.) We invariably
lose the directory to which the files were written, and end up 
with a huge number of files in lost+found.

On the Intel platform, we don't see this behavior.
