I have patches for that, but came across reference counting issues
with the refcount being held in the linux inode not the XFS inode
and hence not being able to properly refcount the xfs inode once
the linux inode is gone away....

Solvable, but I've got to find some time to work on stuff that isn't
just bug fixing....
