.Sh NAME
.Nm VOP_FSYNC
.Nd flush filesystem buffers for a file
.Sh SYNOPSIS
.In sys/param.h
.In sys/vnode.h
.Ft int
.Fn VOP_FSYNC "struct vnode *vp" "struct ucred *cred" "int waitfor" "struct proc *p"
.Sh DESCRIPTION
This call flushes any dirty filesystem buffers for the file.
It is used to implement the
.Xr sync 2
and
.Xr fsync 2
system calls.
.Pp
Its arguments are:
.Bl -tag -width waitfor
.It Ar vp
the vnode of the file
.It Ar cred
the caller's credentials
.It Ar waitfor
whether the function should wait for I/O to complete
.It Ar p
the calling process
.El
.Pp
The argument
.Fa waitfor
is either
.Dv MNT_WAIT
or
.Dv MNT_NOWAIT
and specifies whether or not the function should wait for the writes
to finish before returning.
.Sh LOCKS
The file should be locked on entry.
.Sh RETURN VALUES
Zero is returned if the call is successful, otherwise an appropriate
error code is returned.
.Sh PSEUDOCODE
.Bd -literal
