    SubjectXFS status update for January 2012
    January saw the release of Linux 3.2, which as usual included a large
    number of XFS changes, most notably an large speedup for removing files
    that have external attribute blocks, speedups and livelock fixes for
    sync while doing heavy I/O, and large internal cleanups of the inode
    block map handling. The diffstat for XFS in Linux 3.2 is:

    54 files changed, 2414 insertions(+), 2625 deletions(-)

    which is slightly below the average of the last releases.

    In the meantime development for 3.3 went ahead full speed, including
    the removal of the deprecated pre-delaylog logging code, various
    quota cleanups, a shrink of the inode, a great simplification of the file
    write path as well as the usual batch of fixes and cleanups.

    On the userland side xfs_repair saw various major fixes and speedups,
    with few other fixes thrown in, while xfsdump got two commits fixing
    longer standing issues recently reported on the mailing list. For
    xfstests January was an extremely slow month, seeing only two new test cases
    and less than a handful of other updates.
