Wouldn't surprise me. The performance of the fsync method sucks on
my system (HPUX 10.20) as well. AFAICT HPUX and Linux 2.2.x are not
very smart about fsync on large files --- they scan all the kernel
disk buffers for the target file to find the dirty ones. O_SYNC
avoids this scanning.
I hear Linux 2.4.* is smarter about doing fsync, so it probably has
fsync as fast or faster than O_SYNC.
