Description of problem:

Write&exit command ( 'w' ) in fdisk takes 6 to 8 seconds.
Can we have a quick one ?
I think the slowness is caused by some sleep() and  sync() calls and 

If this is required for bug^Wbackward compatibility, can we have a new
"quick-write&exit" command that does exactly that ?
Comment 1 Elliot Lee 2003-01-13 16:58:11 EST
To get a quick-write&exit command, the best thing to do would be to talk to the upstream 
maintainer at util-linux@math.uio.no
