when doing mount/umount of a MSDOS floppy on 2.2.16-22
I often get

/var/log/messages.1:Nov 25 21:02:18 localhost kernel: set_blocksize: dev
02:00 buffer_dirty 19 size 512
/var/log/messages.2:Nov 16 18:19:05 localhost kernel: set_blocksize: dev
02:00 buffer_dirty 19 size 512

Is this harmless or sume bug in the filesystem?

It implies there were buffers still around that didnt get flushed. Its sort
of 'harmless but shouldnt happen'
