Re: Lost file-system story


Why would sync not be effective under MNT_ASYNC?  Use of sync is not required 
to lead to consistency expect with respect to an arbitrary point in time, but I 
don't think anyone ever believed otherwise.  However, there should be no 
question of metadata never being written out if sync was run?
