Oh, right, you had mentioned that a few days ago about not liking to
have to tune stuff. I agree, the kernel should just work, except in
rare cases. But, with procfs, you could still have the default to
data=writeback, and realtime tuneable. That is what I meant.

Anyhow, I don't want to take up too much of your time. I wouldn't
want to know how busy you are. :P No need to reply. :D
