    Subjecta lot of used inode in 2.1.x kernels
    Running a find over the whole fs in 2.0.x and in a 2.1.x show differences:

    2.0.33:

    andrea@ark:~$ cat /proc/sys/kernel/inode-nr
    432 337

    2.1.110-pre2:

    andrea@dragon:~$ cat /proc/sys/fs/inode-nr
    4112 16
    andrea@dragon:~$ cat /proc/sys/fs/inode-max
    4096

    At first how can be possible that the number of allocated inodes is
    greater than the max in 2.1.110?

    As second is there a way to avoid the use of so many inodes in 2.1.x
    kernels? And why 2.1.x leave so many inode used?

    So many inode allocated should help a lot to make not happy low memory
    machines (I think this is the first cause of the find />/dev/null
    slowdown at second launch on 2.1.x with little ram)...
