    Any recent qemu/kvm stack has perfectly working barrier support. Xen
    is quite broken in that respect, but I hope no one is using that anyway.

    But yes, with large write caches ext3 is rather broken due to the lack
    of barriers. Fortunately enough at least the enterprise enable it
    anyway these days.
