I recently migrated to ext3 from xfs since 2.6.10 and lower at least
would regularly leak enough memory that the system ran out of memory.

That is on a system using md raid1 on two sata drives, with lvm on top,
running xfs in a couple of LVs.  It is now all ext3 and I haven't had a
problem since, and the performance of the filesystem has gone up by an
awful lot.  I didn't think it was really that bad before, but now I
realize just how slowly it was performing.

I hope someday the XFS code becomes usable in the mainstream kernel.
