I'd not expect there to be much specific benefit to it...

I did some benchmarking, now quite a while ago, which showed XFS to
be, for a totally write-bound workload, a *few* percent better than
ext3/JFS, but note that this is only a minor difference.

The fact that XFS isn't one of the "more highly supported" filesystems
on Linux is something I'd consider a *way* more important factor.

When balancing "oh, maybe a tiny percentage faster" against "oh,
nobody will be in a position to offer much support if anything goes
wrong," I'll take "easier to support" any day.
