I know you didn't say RFT, but I did some anyway, and found a 100%
repeatable corruption scenario wrt git+umount.

/dev/sdf3 on /media/root type ext3 (rw,_netdev,noatime,data=guarded,acl,user_xattr)

<user git>
cd /media/root/home/git/testo
git init
cp /usr/local/src/kernel/linux-2.6.30.git/.git/config .git/.
git fetch
git pull
cd
<user root>
umount /media/root
mount /media/root
<user git>
cd /media/root/home/git/testo
git checkout -f

git@marge:..git/testo> git checkout -f

git version 1.6.2.3
.git/config
[core]
repositoryformatversion = 0
filemode = true
bare = false
logallrefupdates = true
[remote "master"]
url = git://localhost/~git/linux-2.6
fetch = +refs/heads/master:refs/remotes/master/master
[branch "master"]
remote = master
merge = refs/heads/master

If I move a .git created while mounted data=writeback into this
directory, I can mount/umount/checkout to my hearts content while
mounted data=guarded, but if I do the fetch/pull/umount while
data=guarded, after umount/mount, the repo is corrupt.

Prior to umount, all seems fine, trees build, git fsck is happy etc.
