    May be we could have two limits, the current 'soft' limit, and a 'hardish' limit
    at which we start syncing inodes, a la Andrea's patch. There would still never
    be a hard limit, as we will always allocate memory for a fresh inode if there
    are no unused or syncable inodes. Is it possible to wake up the update daemon to
    starting the syncing asynchronously, rather than syncing inodes inline as
    Andrea's latest patch does?
