    Windows: Treat all cached writes as write-through
    Treat all writes that are cached in the windows page cache as
    write-through requests so that they are delivered immediately to
    the AFS cache.
    The upside is that the afsd service can begin to store data to the
    file server immediately which can be of significant importance whe
    the AFSCache is larger than the file size and the file size is large
    and the bandwidth to the file server is slow.  In that situation
    the entire file can be written into the windows page cache and
    will only be flushed to disk at the last handle close on the file.
    The downside is that all data will be written to the file server
    including that for files that will later have the delete pending
    flag applied.
