Bug#1833: email@example.com: patch for Debian sysklogd package]
Note that Stephen is the author of the Procmail and SmartList programs
(which operate our list server). Turning off the fsync is indeed a big
win on a machine that operates mailing list. There may be 4 syslog() calls
for each subscriber every time a message goes to a mailing list. This
ends up being continuous disk rattling.
This switch solves the immediate problem, but making a way to tune this
in syslog.conf would be even nicer.
