The XFS updates for the Linux 3.11 kernel include bug-fixes, initial work on project quotes and group quotas to be used together, performance improvements, and numerous other changes.

From the XFS 3.11-rc1 pull request, "[The XFS change-set] includes several bugfixes, part of the work for project quotas and group quotas to be used together, performance improvements for inode creation/deletion, buffer readahead, and bulkstat, implementation of the inode change count, an inode create transaction, and the removal of a bunch of dead code."
