But that's basically mirroring the comment above and it _IS_ XFS
specific after all. Besides, I already posted the patch
to that exact same bugzilla entry that you just posted (I think
that was the one at least :)). I found the bugzilla entry
using their search. The reason I put the comment that way was
that I'm hearing more and more people saying XFS sucks because
of this single issue. I correct people when I can but there are
a number of people that don't even test XFS for that reason
and when they then see "another workaround for another one
of those stupid XFS bugs" in FC2 they'll never touch it.
It's their loss of course but I try to rectify that whenever

Yeah, that is the exact entry I posted on. Hopefully they'll at least
take the code from the patch and insert it into FC2 test 3.
