Thanks for the bug report. Your assumptions are correct, the O_SYNC flag is currently ignored. It looks like O_RDWR and O_LARGEFILE are the only flags used when opening the lower file. This is due to the fact that we have a single, persistent lower file that gets opened. We are planning some upcoming design changes which will affect this area and may allow eCryptfs to support O_SYNC.
