hmm, not at the moment. I didn't know we got the dirsync stuff, but I
haven't been paying too close attention lately.
the attr should't be that difficult to add, mainly depends how much
granularity is currently allowed in your dirsync code. +S is easy
since it basically just forces O_SYNC flags on all open() calls, can
this work the same?
also is dirsync 2.6 only? or am I thinking of something else.
