OK, I turned off the write cache on the disk. Performance dropped from 2222/sec to 2058.

Easy, at least for the small records datastore, which swift builds on. I
have two dedicated areas on disk which are written to alternately for
each transaction. Each area contains both a timestamp and a checksum. On
startup you read both and use the latest valid data.

So you've turned off the disk's hardware cache, too?
