- * anyone who might pick it with bread() afterwards...

- * Also..  Note that bforget() doesn't lock the buffer.  So there can
- * be writeout I/O going on against recently-freed buffers.  We don't
- * wait on that I/O in bforget() - it's more efficient to wait on the I/O
- * only if we really need to.  That happens here.
