Dave actually has an outstanding series to move tests from the toplevel
directory to directories for categories. We already have a lot of
btrfs-specific tests that have a separate directory, as well as xfs
specific ones, ext4 would just follow this model. For this specific
test it actually seems fairly generic except for the commit interval,
so I'd love to run it for all filesystems, just setting the interval for

really reviewed it much myself yet, but I'll try to get to it ASAP.
