As for applications which might be affected, what about shred? Obviously you are quickly writing over the same blocks over and over again.

Then again, I doubt many people consider shred to be performance-critical.

I believe the point of shred is to write to the same disk block repeatedly, not write to the same memory block repeatedly and then flush the final result out to disk?
