SubjectRe: test13-pre6

Stephen,

Have you or can you run these tests directly against a buffered block
device (bypassing the filesystem) and see if it still behaves correctly?
I have a Java app that does this and 2.4.0-prerelease shows a cumulative
sync() time. As I write more data, sync times take longer and longer
and never comes back down. It takes writing 30-50 megs cumulative (many
syncs along the way) to become noticable. Noticable are latencies in
the 20-30 ms range (up from 0-1 at the start of the test). Eventually
the test comes to a grinding halt with all of it's time spent in the
kernel.

I don't know when this happened in 2.4.0-testxx, but 2.2.x does not
show this behavior.
