    Actually, ext3 has been immune from most of the lock breakups in 2.5.
    ext2 used to have a lot of problems with BKL contention resulting from
    ext2_get_block() and some other assorted functions. Al Viro cleaned
    these up in early 2.5, but ext3 never got the cleanup. It still scales
    horribly, even 2.5.45.
