    Cool! Maybe we can make things even better, but given where we are
    at, this brings up an question: given Jens block latency patches
    (thanks, Jens!), and the patches which add the flush on
    replace-via-rename/replace-via-truncate for ext3 data=writeback,
    should we make ext3 data=writeback the default for 2.6.30?
