You're right, my bad.

I read the very same sentence, but AFAIK, default kernel for xfs bundled
with lenny doesn't have that fix.

About a year ago, in a similar rush to yours, I ported two of our
PostgreSQL database servers to XFS. During testing period, I even
couldn't *recover* the / fs after the very first power failure test.
Whole testing period took 1 week and the result was negative. This is my
experience with XFS, and not much more thrash than your technical
knowledge. And instead of being a technology zealot, you'd be better put
forward some real world case scenarios. Try unplugging your xfs machineS
that many timeS, and let's discuss this topic again. Yep, my findings
might be deprecated, but I don't know any others investigating the same
subject with recent versions.

BTW, I still couldn't understand your temper and rudeness. I just share
my experience, and try it, it works.
