Is this directed to the above mentioned "pretentious" people? If yes, could you please point out which of my comments was disrespectful here?

The LWN comment section is not well suited to these kinds of opinionated
"discussions", since there are no tools to control the threading, collapsing
and rating of comments, etc. Hence, the same points keep getting
fruitlessly reargued. Not sure its fixable, but a simple filter *might* help
with signal to noise for those that want to have a novel discussion.
Meanwhile, I'd rather talk about things like which of these fixes actually
solve an issue for people. We have been testing #36 for a short while,
since the umount bug it fixes was actually hitting us in practice. It'd be
nice to talk about something like who here is actually using and testing the
2.6.32.y series, and what issues have they had?

... or, rather, the only wrong thing is an explosion of almost totally
idle ext4 direct I/O kernel threads: one per CPU per sb. That's 96 or
something on my machine. I only want direct I/O for *one filesystem*
