hmm, dump/restore should work fine, if you mount the fs
without tagxid, but I agree it's somewhat suboptimal
maybe a slightly patched dump/restore or rsync would
help there ...

a simple example:
context xid=100 creates a 10MB file, the size is added
to xid=100's disk usage, then the host admin decides to
remove it with rm, how should the kernel know that the
size should be substracted from xid=100's disk usage?
