It is not about advantages and disadvantages at the moment.

But XtraDB simply does not compile on all our builders - Percona has
introduced patches that use CPU atomic ops and didn't implement a
fallback for setups where they are not available (like all the rest of
the code does, including InnoDB).

I hope we'll have XtraDB as the default in 10.0.
