I'm hoping this XFS change can make it in to 2.6.36.  It fixes a bug
that causes allocation groups to be needlessly scanned for reclaim,
because some reclaim state in XFS is never properly cleared when an
inode gets reclaimed.  The result can make filesystems appear to
have an ever-increasing number of reclaimable objects, even if there
is nothing to do.

                                        -Alex
