I have run a series of comparison 3.1.1 tests using the reiserfs,
ext3, and xfs filesystems hosted on a SuSE SLES 10 SP1 system.  There
are two test purposes that pass for ext3 and reiserfs but fail for xfs.

Here is an excerpt from the journal of the xfs run:

10|77 /tset/POSIX.os/ioprim/write/T.write 13:52:33|TC Start, scenario ref 80-0
15|77 3.6-lite 28|TCM Start
[...]
400|77 15 1 13:53:34|IC Start
200|77 15 13:53:34|TP Start
520|77 15 00018119 1 1|time stamps incorrect: mtime, ctime were not updated
220|77 15 1 13:53:40|FAIL
410|77 15 1 13:53:40|IC End

10|113 /tset/LSB.os/ioprim/writev_L/T.writev_L 14:03:41|TC Start, scenario ref 119-0

400|113 15 1 14:04:41|IC Start
200|113 15 14:04:41|TP Start
520|113 15 00018514 1 1|time stamps incorrect: mtime, ctime were not updated
220|113 15 1 14:04:47|FAIL
410|113 15 1 14:04:47|IC End
[...]

Are these failures the result of a legitimate optimisation or is this
a bug?  The xfs filesystem was mounted with the options set to
"defaults".
