Re: cpio to ext4 seems much slower than to ext2, ext3 or xfs

During the F12 development cycle, I have done a number of installs on both bare hardware and qemu-kvm guests.

In all cases, I have formatted the root ("/") partition as ext4. I have noticed that formatting the partition for ext4 seems to take considerably more wall-clock time for ext4 partitions than my previous experience with ext3 partitions.

I do not know if this is because ext4 "formatting" needs to do a lot more work than ext3 or if there is a performance issue.

There shouldn't be a big difference, but if you want to do some tests, find a difference, and report back with some times, I'd be interested.
