From kernel guys working on android.
And, I'm in also doubt they may have done something regarding to power mode
change, by the fact that I've seen annoying performance jitters comparing to
ext4's ones all the time in some android products.

Frankly speaking, I cannot find a concrete reason to remove plugging entirely,
since I can't see big performance differences in all my test results in severs
as well.

Thanks,
