           Summary: Calling sync on large filesystems when not always
           Product: buildroot

            Status: NEW

When using build root to cross compile for other devices, especially when doing
many builds (multiple targets), on a CI system with 10s of gigs of ram and many
intermediate targets, then sync is not really desirable here.

The makedevs step makes a call to /bin/sync.

I am suggesting a "--nosync" be introduced so buildroot will not sync the
drives then? While of course preserving existing behaviour for the majority
that don't find any problems.
