Re: sync(1) not really syncing??

Yeah I mean having sync(2) block until it's "really" done. Which
could stall the system for quite a bit with big / many buffers around.

That would be a DoS as a user could write big files and then sync to stall the whole system. It may block sync(1), but *NEVER* the system as a whole.
