>From the noflushd page, regarding a new version:
"...And most importantly, it clearly documents that noflushd currently
cannot sanely work with any journaling filesystem like ext3, reiserfs,
jfs, xfs etc. Better support for those filesystems might be added in
later versions of noflushd, but first the Linux kernel has to provide
certain hooks to userland. Which it currently doesn't."

So maybe I'm out of luck in all cases.

But hopefully, either Reiser or XFS will not have the persistent spinup
problem I have with ext3.
(...or will they?)


Also (this is not directed at you in particular), I read the 404 pages
when I sent my original query, and I saw that penguinppc.org was running
off of a backup server.  I was asking if there were any other
sources for that page.  :)
