[Gluster-users] ext4 and attributes, plus how to do reboots

i am playing with 3.3beta2 on centos 6.2 machines with ext4 for the
bricks.  should that work?  i have enabled user_xattr on the mounts and
i can manually set attributes, but i have never found anything set by
gluster.  is there code that explicitly checks for xfs?  should i see
attributes get set on the root of the bricks?  on any kind of regular files?

my setup is a simple two node mirror, and i've tried rebooting one while
writing files, and there doesn't seem to be a good way to know when the
nodes are resynchronized.  even after running a heal find, it seems like
things aren't really in sync.  i then reboot the other node and have
found situations where i have inconsistent data between nodes.  is there
an officially blessed way to perform reboots for maintenance, updates, etc?
