Yes, that's what Richard was referring to earlier in this thread.  It is
an opportunity that will, if taken, increase the write performance of
the kernel.

My measurements of XO-1 write performance were invalid also because I
was writing zeros, which were easily compressed by jffs2.  The XO-1.5
filesystem is not compressed.
