We did this switch for all distros to support SSD disks better.

How about using XFS? ext falls over in high parallelism - and that
certainly exists on all the per-host workers doing build
setup/teardown in the BSrv.

XFS is terribly slow with many/small files, specially when deleting. So
IMO this can't be a good choice for mostly doing make and rpm -i.
