[CentOS] Looking for experiences with filesystem choices....

So I tried XFS last night and it cut my copy times down substantially, so I
need someone to verify that XFS in centos 5.4 has barriers enabled by
default, I am not using LVM just the old fashion partitions and mount
points.  It appears that reading from the centos wiki that xfs is enabled in
the kernel due to upstream vendor doing so for the first timeI loaded up
xfsprogs and xfsdump but it was not clear about the barrier details....

Thanks...in advance. :)
