We are about to bring up a new fileserver with ext4. We've been running
ext4 for several months in non-AFS production boxes and were very happy
with the performance - measurably faster than ext3 for large file i/o.
I'm a bit surprised nobody else has admitted to using ext4 for their
/vicep*, but at least nobody has reported problems with it either.
