This starts to make sense to me.

So a log segment file (000000000.log) may have some messages that's in
local filesystem hard drive, some messages that's in pagecache? Say if
a 0000000.log file has 150 messages and the first 100 has been flushed
to local hard drive and the last 50 is still in the pagecache, what
would happen if there is machine crash? Then when we restart the
server, we will see the 000000.log file with only 100 messages in it?
