Linux now has a sys_syncfs syscall to sync a single file system, b7ed78f56575074f29ec99d8984f347f6c99c914.

The attached file #12171 (`sync vs. syncfs.mbox') contains some old discussion emails.

On a Hurd system we currently have both `sync' (from GNU coreutils) and `syncfs' (from GNU Hurd), whereas the former provides only a subset of the fuctionality of the latter.

In my opinion, they should be merged, having `syncfs' be absorbed into coreutils's `sync'.

This, of course, needs to be discussed with <bug-coreutils@gnu.org>.
