Probably don't hurt. Most programs ignore them anyway. > fsync is not implemented. Beside of timing this should not make a difference as long the maschine don't crash. (I think that's what libeatmydata is doing via LD_PRELOAD). And we are building on tmpfs anyway (I don't know if fsync does anything on tmpfs). > xattrs are not implemented. Probably only hurts for packages which need to handle those and have test cases for it. (e.g. rsync, rdiff-backup, ...) Can packages contain files with xattrs and if yes does this anybody? > Locks are not propagated to the underlying filesystem. This will hurt when a build system relies on them. I have no idea how many are affected by this. > I *believe* this will break several builds, won't it? I think the locks should be fixed; the xattrs on the long run; fsync and close can probably be broken for ever without (much) damage. Thats obviously only my personal speculation (the only proper thing is probably a (partial) archive rebuild to see what happens) HW42
