But these do not cover fsync()s for /var/lib/dpkg/status and 
/var/lib/dpkg/updates/*, do they? Those are very frequent as well and slow the 
whole process down. I think you need to expand --force-unsafe-io scope.

Btw, how will I be able to enable --force-unsafe-io for dpkg when it's run 
under apt/aptitude? Maybe environment variable and/or /etc/dpkg/dpkg.cfg 
option is a better solution then?
