SubjectRE: 2.5.70-mm2
I use MySQL pretty extensively, so I'll excersize that as well as
the day-to-day builds, etc. I'm on day 4 of -mm1, no problems to date.

By definition, I'm happy!

I was specifically referring to the O_SYNC changes there. That means
databases: postgresql, mysql, sapdb, etc.

Some of these use fsync()-based synchronisation and won't benefit, but they
may have compile-time or runtime options to use O_SYNC instead.

Apart from that, just using the kernel in day-to-day activity is the most
important thing. If everyone does that, and everyone is happy then by
definition this kernel is a wrap.
