What cc's? Still no xfs cc on it. I added it to this reply....

Why even bother? This is why we have /modular/ kernels - if you're
not using XFS then don't load it and you won't see those pesky
threads. That'll save on a bunch of memory as well because the xfs
module ain't small (>480k on i386)....
