But it seems that if the buffer-in-memory-only setting is set, the
shutdown of the client should cause the partial blocks to be saved
back to the same file that they were loaded from, in a similar
manner in which it saves the completed blocks to the remote buffers,
rather than being simply discarded.

I'd like to avoid any disk I/O on the system other than its NFS
transactions to the buffer directories.
