i like those details, CentOS 6 can not use the 'discard' trim option
because it is only at 2.6.32, but 'discard' requires 2.6.35.  Then
again, i should check the --changelog to see if it was backported.

rsyslog is already comes preinstalled in most distributions so logging
does not have to wear out your ssd.
Alternatively, is their room to add a spinning platters hdd for logging.
