I really don't think we want a comment by every mmiowb() explaining what
it does. We needed one by the write flush because it had two potential
meanings, and we didn't want people overoptimising it away. But mmiowb()
is clear and unambiguous.

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
