Sorry, I've just been totally swamped this past couple of monthes;
work deadlines, plus a lot of other things that have been just keeping
me totally overloaded.

Can you tell me *which* xfstest this was blocking on? I generally run
xfstests under KVM, on the console, which is nice because the xfstests
output gets interleaved with any kernel oops/softlock up messages.

Also, for the sort of changes you are doing using the check -g quick
is probably good enough, that will get you unblocked.

I don't recall anything going wrong with a -g auto run with a standard
4k block size, but I'll give it a try on my end and see what I get.
