Have you got links to further comments on this issue, by others?

I've been using xfs happily (but not exclusively) for lots  of stuff for
years, but would like to read about problems if they exist.

I think I remember problems early on (maybe 2005ish). And I think I
remember seeing problems when using LVM snapshots under it, but haven't
tried that again since.
