    Problem is, it's the storage configuration (at administration time, not
    kernel build time) that matters, too.

    I have XFS on Fedora with 4k stacks on SATA /dev/sdb1 on my x86 mythbox,
    and it's perfectly fine. But that's a nice, simple setup. If I stacked
    more things over/under it, I'd be more likely to have trouble.
