 I think that it is a very usual situation.
 Reading the code (I copy it from lfs_cleanerd.c file), it is called
 when the ifile grows.
 Ifile grows when the number of inodes increases. (Margo paper, page
 10, first paragraph)
 (file=inode map + segment usage table).
         /* If Ifile is larger than buffer cache, rehash */
         fstat(fs->clfs_ifilefd, &st);
         if (st.st_size / lfs_sb_getbsize(fs) > hashmax) {
                 ohashmax = hashmax;
                 bufrehash(st.st_size / lfs_sb_getbsize(fs));
                 dlog("%s: resized buffer hash from %d to %d",
                      lfs_sb_getfsmnt(fs), ohashmax, hashmax);
