XFS has a nasty bug where it will leave files full of zeros on disk in a
crash.

I think it was Alan Cox that said this could be fixed quite easily by
changing the write ordering for XFS, but that someone who was willing to
maintain the patch would need to do it.

If this was merged I would love to move to XFS :)
