    Subject[kmemleak report 1/2] kernel 3.1.6, x86_64: mm, xfs ?, vfs ?
    Mostly 10 … 30 objects are reported with identical backtraces after daily tarsync run updating the
    Gentoo portage tree on my root partition:

    unreferenced object 0xffff8800ca5c9e50 (size 208):
    comm "flush-8:0", pid 12135, jiffies 4525218264 (age 20542.327s)
    hex dump (first 32 bytes):
    88 bd b9 1c 01 88 ff ff 00 e0 da 24 01 88 ff ff ...........$....
    80 f3 6f 81 ff ff ff ff 04 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 ..o.............

    For trials to reproduce the problem, mount options and relevant part of sysctl.conf settings are
    shown below:
    * I get fewer of this backtraces, when I switch off laptop mode and use sysctl.conf (b) kernel
    default settings.
    * I get even more of this backtraces and additionally ALSA output stalls, when I switch off laptop
    mode and use sysctl.conf settings (c) “paranoid” shown below.
    * I get fewer of this backtraces, when I try to reproduce the write load on another XFS partition
    with the same mount options (same disk, theoretically a bit faster than the root partition).
    * I get none of this backtraces, when I use this other XFS partition with mount option nodelaylog.


    grep ' / ' /proc/mounts

    sysctl.conf: (a) laptop mode with my preferred settings

    sysctl.conf: (b) kernel default, for convenient “undoing” of (a) and (c)
    ---------------------------------
    fs.xfs.age_buffer_centisecs = 1500
    fs.xfs.filestream_centisecs = 3000

    sysctl.conf: (c) “paranoid”, just for testing
    -----------------------------

    fs.xfs.filestream_centisecs = 100
    fs.xfs.xfsbufd_centisecs = 50
