Synchronous I/O is *very* slow but you need to discuss that mostly with
hardware vendors if you must use it. Hard disks have very low
operations/seconds and very high internal latencies you can't hide if the
application demands synchronous I/O.

That is why we have fsync/fdatasync and thread creation...
