    Windows: buf_CleanAsync is not async; rename it
    buf_CleanAsync() calls cm_BufWrite() which stores the dirty
    buffers synchronously.  There is nothing asynchronous about
    buf_CleanAsync() so rename it to buf_Clean() and buf_CleanAsyncLocked()
    to buf_CleanLocked().   Update the comments to remove the references
    to the asynchronous processing which doesn't exist.
    That is not to say that the call to buf_Clean() in buf_GetNewLocked()
    should not be asynchronous; it should.  There is no such functionality
    at the moment.  One approach would be to modify buf_IncrSyncer to
    trigger on an event set by buf_GetNewLocked() instead of the call
    to buf_Clean().  Another approach would be registering a background
    store event.  In any case, that is for another patchset.
