Agreed.  Play with the blocking/buffering options of xfsdump

Again (I know, I'm repeating myself), there is no reason to
use an external buffering program to a local tape device. 
Only if you are streaming to an external device do you need
to pipe through a buffering program on the other size (where
the tape device is local).
