You can't run with -o nobarrier just because the driver/hardware support
FUA. However the implementation of -o barrier (aka REQ_FUA) is a lot
more efficient if it is implemented. If your workload has a high
percentage of REQ_FUA requests it might be better to switch the disks to
write through mode entirely.
