Ok, so we are looking at a fixed regression, then. What stable
version of 2.6.32 are you testing? A large number of XFS fixes went
into 2.6.32.12 (IIRC, it might have been .13), so maybe the problem
is fixed there. Alternatively, can you use 2.6.34 rather than
2.6.32, or bisect the regression down to a specific set of fixes so
we can consider whether a backport is worth the effort?

I think only osyncisosync exists, and it doesn't do anything
anymore.

Cheers,

Dave.
