Ok, I see this too.... looks like bdflush is the only thing that's

If I try a sync, then that's what hangs, both of these get lost in
write_some_buffers - looks like a deadlock?

Hm.... you think Hans did this on purpose?  ;-)

I'll see if I can find anything next week... time for my weekend now,
I'm afraid.

Thanks for pointing this out!


p.s. fwiw, this is on adaptec hardware as well.
