I'm a bit suspicious of this result.

This patch only changes inode_cmp_iversion{+raw} (since renamed to
inode_eq_iversion{+raw}), and that neither should ever be called from
xfs. The patch is fairly trivial too, and I wouldn't expect a big
performance hit.

Is IMA involved here at all? I didn't see any evidence of it, but the
kernel config did have it enabled.
