Mmmh... I might have misunderstood the proposal then. I thought this
"atomic write" API was about writing the file contents in one go and
immediately closing the file. If you want atomicity to apply to logging,
you must instead guarantee the durability of each write() call, meaning
calling fsync() on each logging call, which would be very expensive.

Am I missing something?
