pure == 2.5.68
kludge == 2.5.68+kludge in blkdev_put()

% grep Dirt =noinitrd-*
=noinitrd-kludge=:Dirty: 0 kB # before
=noinitrd-kludge=:Dirty: 4 kB # after
=noinitrd-pure=:Dirty: 0 kB # before
=noinitrd-pure=:Dirty: 4 kB # after

So it would appear to me that initrd is the common denominator among
those of us reporting similar symptoms.
