I noticed that there was a bug fix for this recently.  Exactly how
dangerous is it now?  Using it seems to significantly increase LFS
performance (metadata-related?), though I haven't done benchmarks yet.
 Unfortunately, it still doesn't help the "use up all the CPU while
untarring pkgsrc" problem. :( much.

"The frivolity and boredom which unsettle the established order, the
vague foreboding of something unknown, these are the heralds of
approaching change.  The gradual crumbling that left unaltered the the
face of the whole is cut short by a sunburst which, in one flash,
illuminates the features of the new world."  --G.W.F. Hegel,
