I use Reiserfs for the small boot partition then XFS and it
just behaves correctly ALL the time.
Actully XFS is much worse in case of crush than any EXT* filesystem and
it often used as "you can do this because XFS is doing this". Sorry, but I
just don't buy you story. How often you XFS-based system crashes? How
consistent it's afterwards? We need to know before your evidence can be
used in this dicussion...
My personal experience with XFS was horrible exactly with behavior like
descibed: save the file or configuration on disk, power off the system -
then reboot and find out that file has zero bytes now. Few such incidents
were enough for me. If you answer is "don't do this" then how the hell your
experience is relevant to topic?
