XFS on Linux 3.4 for the Intel SSD with Sandy Bridge processor also regressed for the eight thread, 64MB random write benchmark with the Threaded I/O Tester.

CompileBench also showed performance regressions for the XFS file-system with the Linux 3.4 kernel. The Btrfs and EXT4 results were not too interesting although the evolutionary EXT4 file-system continued to run well ahead of Btrfs for most workloads.
