    And if this eats someones disk because you drive the hardware out of spec
    you are going to sit there and tell them to bisect it ? Lovely.

    Ingo - put the christmas wine away and have a coffee. Now think first.
    You won't bisect obscure timing triggered problems, and the _p users are
    almost all for hardware where performance doesn't matter one iota (eg

    This isn't even all down to the chipset internal logic - several of my
    boxes have external CMOS NVRAM/RTC chips which are probably the same
    design (if a little smaller) as ten years ago.

    io_delay = none is exactly the same thing as CPU overclocking. Hard to
    debug, unpredictable and stupid.
