Hi. Is there a way to tune XFS filesystem parameters to better address
the usage pattern of 10000s of tiny files in directories such as:
    maildir directory
    mh mail directory
    ccache directory

My understanding is that XFS will always be much slower than reiserfs
with respect to deleting 10000s files; but that XFS might be possible to
tune toward more rapid read access of 10000s of tiny files.

Regards,
