comment Why does a linux guest consume 100% of the host CPU under VirtualBox when the guest appears idle?
Running cpufreq-set -g powersave on the guest machine may help keep CPU frequencies down when the guest machine is idle.

comment Tiny directory on ext4 file system taking up 2024 blocks?
Also, how terrible a practice would it be if you created a 10GB file, then truncated it to 2GB, only to have du report the size as 10GB of unreclaimable space? ext4 does not do this so by your logic it doesn't care about disk fragmentation either, or at least only selectively so.

comment Stdin Input Behavior Between “cat” and “less”
Indeed the less(1) manpage says [filename] which would imply that it was an optional argument.

comment Tiny directory on ext4 file system taking up 2024 blocks?
It is obvious that neither reiserfs nor xfs care as much about disk fragmentation - That's a pretty arrogant thing to say; there's no reason to think those filesystems don't avoid fragmentation in a way that allows directory truncation.

I'm wondering how XFS and ReiserFS handle this. They evidently truncate their directories when entries are deleted.

I did some digging and apparently dirty directories are a known issue on ext* file systems. More reason to use xfs.

comment Tiny directory on ext4 file system taking up 2024 blocks?
@derobert The directory would have to have contained ~40,000 files to make it grow to that size. I think it's more likely that something is amiss.

Have you tried using iftab and ifrename? I mean honestly, udev is overkill for this problem.

@oligofren I don't doubt better solutions exist. TMTOWTDI I guess.
