What kernel are you running and what sort of machine?
I don't have acces to a machine with >4GB ram so I can't comment on that.

Arjan van de Ven also told me that there might be highmem problems when
the kernel is compiled with the older kgcc compiler. So can you try
compiling the kernel with a late gcc-2.96 like -85 or -98 if I remember

Have you already searched the linux-xfs mailinglist archives at ?

There are some other people running a config like this AFAIK.
