I encourage you to do this one, it really affects performance significantly for
squid. Reiserfs would put everything in one directory for squid and gain 10-24%
if not for this lock. Whether it should be done pre or post 2.4 I leave to
others..... except to say that we will be happy to scramble a bit to adapt to
your fix of this.
