OK ... I can confirm that I copied a large file (650mb ISO file) from
ext3 to XFS partition ... and the MD5 sums were indeed different

(This is on an i686 kernel, with the standard module loaded)

However, I did not have any errors in:

"xfs_logprint /dev/hda3"

so this is quite strange.

I have the test suite compiled now and I will kick off this test in a
little while.
