Interesting links. dir_index is the default under RHEL 4. We've been
using it for about two months now, and it works well enough, but I
haven't done this kind of performance comparison to see how it compares
to no dir_index or to ReiserFS.

The tune2fs manpage says that you can do
tune2fs -O dir_index /dev/hda1
e2fsck -D /dev/hda1
I've not tried this.
