This is the second attempt. The first one was here:
It was very hacky and got no comments.
Jens is working on? Doesn't that require a completely different
(probably simpler) implementation of your patch?
to be changing the guts of write-back, while I only touch
the timer which wakes up the periodic write-back thread,
nothing else. I'll try to take Jens' patches and see.
There's definitely overlap! The timer is gone with my patches and so is
pdflush. For an idle (idle here meaning no background writeback
activity) system, there should just be bdi-default running. And that
will wake up every dirty_writeback_interval by default.
