It seems to be operating a bit better, but there are a few things I
* I get `lfs_vflush: flushing VDIROP, this shouldn't be' fairly often.
A very unscientific sampling indicates that the cleaner has run
recently whenever this happens. (One of the processes is in `S'
state rather than `I' state.)
* Every `sync' causes 8k(+1k) to be used, even if the file system is
otherwise idle. This seems poor.
* Trying to fill the file system with `dd if=/dev/zero bs=64k' and `dd
if=/dev/zero bs=1k' simultaneously causes the cleaner to munch
really hard, and then eventually panic with `lfs_nextseg: no clean
I'm sure I'll get bitten by something else. B-)
