You should NOT run update daemon on system from now on (whether
or not you are actually running softdep) - there
is a kernel process doing the same now. The kernel process 
uses much clever algorithm to do the sync and is integrated
with softdep so that only consistent set of dirty buffers is
flushed to disk. Or at least that's what I understand about it,
hopefully correctly :)
