Subject[PATCH 3/4] ext3: Add replace-on-truncate hueristics for data=writeback mode
Date
In data=writeback mode, start an asynchronous flush when closing a
file which had been previously truncated down to zero. This lowers
the probability of data loss in the case of applications that attempt
to replace a file using truncate.
