But you haven't followed my advice when it comes to using default
mkfs options, have you? You're running 2k inodes and 64k directory
block size, which is not exactly a common config

The question is, why do you have these options configured, and are
they responsible for things being slow?

Sounds like you might be hitting the synchronous xattr removal
problem that was recently fixed (as has been mentioned already), but
even so 2 IOs don't take 1-2s to do, unless the MD RAID5 barrier
implementation is really that bad. If you mount -o nobarrier, what
