I looked into this, and we're not actually doing too badly - our syslogd 
doesn't fsync() after every log entry. I'm broadly in favour of using 
tmpfs, though. There's an argument that certain priorities probably want 
to stay on disk, but otherwise we can simply sync the tmpfs to disk on 
shutdown or reboot.
