OK, to do. To be honest, I didn't update them recently.

I only forgot to do it.

But I didn't want to make a full comparaison of ext4 to xfs and ext3.
When testing the latest ext4 patch queue with a new kernel, I'd got
sometimes kernel crashes, or system hang, or bad performance.
Running the same tests on ext3 and xfs for which the code is more
stable I think gives me reference numbers for my tests.
In this way, I found in the past a problem in the IO scheduler.
