    Hugh, I thought your original goal was to kill bdflush?

    Anyway, even if bdflush does it job, it looks like

    Time: 0 10 20 30 40 50 seconds
    Write of 10M into buffers

    In case of bdflush, something like
    Wr. 2M Wr.2M Wr.2M Wr.2M Wr.2M onto disk
    should happen.

    In case of bdflush , something like
    Wr. 2M Wr.8M may happen in case of your sync awakening
    at t=20.
