It seems stable but there were issues with old copies of fsck making
the kernel panic because they filled in junk in places dirpref expected
some sort of statistical info. There's also the issue of letting the
change mature a bit before possibly hurting users with a new layout
policy that's just recently been discovered, basically there may be
unforseen issues. Personally I'd like to see snapshots and background
fsck backported. :)

Instead of asking why a piece of software is using "1970s technology,"
start asking why software is ignoring 30 years of accumulated wisdom.
