Yes, I'd really prefer more time. I also expect to come up with some
more changes in that area. Your patch makes the differences between
kupdate and pdflush-stye writeback look even more ugly then it already
is, so I want to see i there's some nicer way to handle it. I also want
to take a look if it makes sense to distangle data integrity and
background writeback somehow.
