    That would only prove its not dm-crypt; it would not absolve a non-DM
    2.6.37-rc change at all.

    Leveraging the fact that 2.6.36 + parallel dm-crypt is reportedly very
    solid: maybe these would be more interesting (each would keep the latest
    parallel dm-crypt patch overlayed for all tests):

    1) Test 2.6.37-rc prior to all flush+fua changes (only changes DM saw
    for 2.6.37-rc so far).

    2) Back out all ext4 changes that were merged for 2.6.37-rc
    - though Heinz is using XFS exclussively and still reported

    3) A full git bisect of good=v2.6.36 bad=v2.6.37-rc4 would be the most
    interesting. Albeit much more tedious.
