Description Kazuo Moriwaka 2012-05-17 04:02:03 UTC
Description of problem:

bdflush(2) is obsolete syscall, but bdflush(2) and syscalls(2) don't have 
description for this status.  This may cause useless testing especially at performance tuning.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
all

How reproducible:
always
  
Expected results:

DESCRIPTION or NOTES have statement to describe that
bdflush(2) syscall is obsoleted and ignored now.

Additional info:
I reported man-pages upstream project, too.
