I might be naive in asking this, but why are buffer-heads still used at all? Obviously, filesystems were meant to transition away from using them for flushing, so what are they still used for?
Also, I might again be naive in asking, but why not patch all filesystems to not use them for flushing, if doing so is incorrect?
