    SubjectChange in default vm_dirty_ratio

    The default vm_dirty_ratio changed from 40 to 10
    for the 2.6.22-rc kernels in this patch:

    IOZone write drops by about 60% when test file size is 50 percent of
    memory. Rand-write drops by 90%.

    Is there a good reason for turning down the default dirty ratio?
    How will it help for most cases? Intuitively, it seems like
    a less aggressive writeback will have better performance.
