What kernel, filesystem and filesystem option did you measure with?

I was/am using ext4, and it turns out that, when abling flushing, the
results are hugely dependant on barriers=on/off, with the latter making
flushing rather advantageous. Additionally data=ordered/writeback makes
measureable difference too.

Reading kernel sources trying to understand some more of the performance
