I made new tests with the code under
<http://www.unet.univie.ac.at/~a9100884/readdir.c> on a bunch of freshly
generated and empty filesystems, every about 38GB large, of type fat
(aborted after about 22000 entries because it took to long), ext2, xfs,
jfs and again ext3. All tests made with 2.6.24-19-generic (ubuntu
8.04.1).

I also tried minix fs, just for fun, but I could only create 126 files.

Ext3 shows the same effect as before, but at 103033 entries (readdir)
and 104136 entries (readdir64). 'ls|sort -n|uniq -d' output (ls uses
getdents64, so I asume it uses readdir64, but I don't checked the ls
source):

        root darfnix:/readdir/ext3/testdir# ls|sort -n|uniq -d
        102456
        root darfnix:/readdir/ext3/testdir# 

Can I do anything else?

Tom
