To date I don't, but my only other system, not XFS is not the same
configuration either. As a matter of fact, I've only got 1 system like
the one which is shown here. 

Of note though, *my* stats are very different from Sebastian's. I'm
using XFS-2.4.17 patched with -aarc2. So, my system may be as maxed as I
can get in the way that it works.
