Just a minor issue, but when I did some XFS tracing using the instructions
at http://lwn.net/Articles/341899/ I found that there was trailing garbage
in the filenames logged in xfs_lookup.  Example:

        bonnie++-26179 [000] 322388.834204: xfs_iunlock: dev 8:32 ino 0xfe1e6 
flags ILOCK_SHARED caller xfs_free_eofblocks
        bonnie++-26179 [000] 322388.834212: xfs_lookup: dev 8:32 dp ino 0xfb50d 
name 000000295aSl688>v??*N
        bonnie++-26179 [000] 322388.834213: xfs_ilock: dev 8:32 ino 0xfb50d 
flags ILOCK_SHARED caller xfs_ilock_map_shared

(where I think the real filename was "000000295aSl688"). I would guess the
logger is expecting null-terminated strings but they aren't.

This is with the stock kernel from Ubuntu 11.10 server x86_64:
Linux storage1 3.0.0-15-server #26-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jan 20 19:07:39 UTC 2012
