XFS supported in ARM? Stable?

I hope this is not minutia ... but for a long time XFS was very unstable/unreliable on ARM. Is this no longer the case?

If fixed, can anyone point me to the docs on it? I'd had no idea it was fixed.

What was the instability with it ? Data corruptions ? Kernel panics ?

I will try it on my Goflex Home. I usually use ext4 and btrfs for my text files partitions (autocompression).

What should I try ?

For my perspective I haven't seen any improvement using XFS over ext4 but I can test it if you want.

Well, this problem was back in the 2.6.20-ish days... it seems lots of folks use XFS now on ARM w/ no problems, so someone must have isolated the problem and fixed it...


Goodness, how the years roll by... I didn't realize that it was 5 years ago...
