Subject[testcase] fsync/O_SYNC simple test cases
Hi,

The code below may be useful for doing simple testing of the O_SYNC
and f[data]sync code in the kernel. It times various combinations of
updates-in-place and appends under various synchronisation mechanisms,
making it possible to see clearly whether fdatasync is skipping inode
updates for updates-in-place, for example.
