Linus, are you using with data=writeback?

Those of us, who did (without UPS), will never do it again.

Propability of non-trivial FS corruption becomes so much bigger.
I believe from my experience, average number of crashes before
one loses FS becomes single digit number.

With data=ordered, it's quite hard.
