    SubjectHowto switch off ext4's delayed allocation?
    From
    Hi,

    Every since switching to ext4, I suffer fromt he empty files problem
    after crashes.
    Since GEM/KMS was included, as well as the changes to the usb-serial
    subsystem I experience crashes from time to time.

    As far as I understand this is caused by delayed allocation.
    I really enjoy the performance benefits of ext4, and I know
    applications should be fixed - but having this problem seen with so
    many apps I doubt it will ever happen. (Kwrite, bash itself, umtsmon,
    ...).

    Is there any way to disable delayed allocation? (running 2.6.31rc8)

    Thank you in advance, Clemens
