Well... the last I heard the last known bugs in the htree code were fixed,
but I'm not 100% positive on that.  The good news is that we (Lustre)
are on the verge of starting to use the new patches ourselves, and we
run regression tests all the time, and need to test huge filesystems (10M
files in one directory), so we'll likely hit any bugs sooner or later.
