AFAICT, the syncer only speeds up when virtual memory paging fills the
buffers past
a threshold and even in that event it only speeds it up by a factor of two.

I can't find any provision for speeding up flushing of the dirty buffers
when they fill for normal file system writes, so I don't think that
