Btw, while you're at it, can you try doing some random writes to that
thing, since the whole sync mount is quite possibly going to find a few
other cases like this.

IOW, _maybe_ you hit the only case that is ever going to be an issue for
sync mounts, and maybe you didn't. In my eternal quest to never actually
test anything myself, I'm hoping you can try some writing (and
over-writing) of files, since writes to the filesystem is where the whole
"sync" thing is going to show up (both metadata ie file creation and
removal, and "real" data ie normal write/truncate calls).
