Even on the root fs?  I wasn't aware of this.

Is it possible to pass "-i size=512" to mkfs.xfs through the GUI or do you 
have to run mkfs.xfs from the command line to do so?

Well if you have 256 byte Inodes then your test results may make you unhappy.  
Lots of disk space used and no good way of reclaiming it.  But I would be 
interested to hear about your test results apart from issues of performance 
and wasted disk space...
