If you read my original post in this thread, you will find that
I am pointing at inconsistencies of what Linus describes as reality
Nope. You are being 100% smart-ass. Linus's reality check is not
inconsistent. It's description of reality and reality is not
consistent. Whenever it was? You have different factors and in
different but quite real situations different factors prevail.
So, I ridicule (among other things) his conclusion that: ext3
sucks at doing fsync(), hence we should drop fsync().
That's different facet of reality. When you consider reality from kernel
developer POV what the applications are doing is your "unchangeable fact",
your "speed of light", when you consider reality from application developer
POV what the kernel does is "unchangeable fact" and you should deal with
it. This is true even if kernel developer and application developer is the
same person. You can only think differently if your application is designed
to only be used "in-house" and you can always guarantee
control over both kernel and userspace - and git was not designed to only
be used "in-house"...
And, I do not see how I am not being polite by exercising
criticism with a hint of sarcasm.
You are exercising ignorance with a hint of sarcasm. That's
