Try:

echo 40 500 64 256 0 >/proc/sys/vm/bdflush

once you want to return to the old behaviour:

echo 40 500 64 256 500 >/proc/sys/vm/bdflush
killall -CONT kupdate

With this below additional patch you can avoid having to modify the
bdflush sysctl and you can simply killall -STOP or killall -CONT kupdate
to wake/stop it (as you can just do in 2.4.x).
