I've noticed that if I untar a lot of files on an LFS filesystem,
toward the very end of the untar (when all files in the archive are
listed with -v but before it finishes), tar consumes 95%+ CPU for a
few minutes and things get VERY slow.  This does not happen on FFS
filesystems.  Is this just the nature of LFS, a bug, or do I have
something set up incorrectly?  I got my lfs bsize from the -A option
