    Oh, right, you had mentioned that a few days ago about not liking to
    have to tune stuff. I agree, the kernel should just work, except in
    rare cases. But, with procfs, you could still have the default to
    data=writeback, and realtime tuneable. That is what I meant.

    Anyhow, I don't want to take up too much of your time. I wouldn't
    want to know how busy you are. :P No need to reply. :D
