It should help on 2.4. There's also a parameter to the mkfs.xfs (which is what I
actually meant but which is probably harder to find!) that has a similar effect
but you probably need to recreate the FS.

Whether this "fix" helps on existing FSs I don't know. You'll probably be better
asking on the XFS lists really.
