    hammer2 - Avoid unnecessary IO
    * With the new strategy we no longer have to build smaller blocksizes into
      larger buffers.
      When flushing embedded data we can now getblk() the block instead of
      bread() it.
    * DELETED nodes have to be explicitly flushed to remove references
      associated with MODIFY1 and MOVE.
    * There's no need to flush meta-data associated with a deleted node.
