>             Project: Kafka
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: log
>    Affects Versions: 0.9.0.1, 0.10.0.0
>         Environment: Linux, ext4 filesystem

> Kafka does not call fsync() on directory when new log segment is created and flushed
to disk.
> The problem is that following sequence of calls doesn't guarantee file durability: 
> fd = open("log", O_RDWR | O_CREATE); // suppose open creates "log"
> write(fd);
> fsync(fd);
> If system crashes after fsync() but before parent directory have been flushed to disk,
the log file can disappear.
> This is true at least for ext4 on Linux.
> Proposed solution is to flush directory when flush() is called for the first time.
