I've had a couple of boxes with Reiserfs crash recently from
UPS problems and multiple times they have refused to mount
without a fsck with --rebuild-tree, which takes a full day
or so.  I thought the point of journaling was to avoid needing
that...  Is there any reason to expect better from xfs?  These
are running backuppc and need better-than-ext3 performance
at creating/removing files.
