Hi,


Between 2.6.33 and 2.6.37 there was a lot of interesting announcements 
with regards to XFS performance. However, now that I booted into 
2.6.37.2, I still see the metadata slowness from earlier.
(Basically `time (tar -xf linux-2.6.37.tar.gz; sync)` - ext4 gets the 
job done in like 15-20 seconds, xfs is still syncing after 11 minutes.)

Was there something I missed?
