ufs multilabel performance (fwd)

Without any benchmarks I would also think for the high io, in the xen dom0 
I see high disk activity (eg 99% writes) when using mac labels. But of 
course I will do the tests, please give some instructions, how to compile 
the kernel, how the implement the benchmark.

Thanks in advance,
