With ext4's delayed allocation, the metadata changes can be journalled without writing out the blocks. So in case of a crash, the metadata changes (that were journalled) get replayed, but the data changes don't.
This is so broken. How can anyone think this is a good idea? Or an "upgrade" from ext3?
