If you read the comments on tytso's blog you'll see that current
position is: "POSIX is right while applications are broken yet we'll save
them anyway". Even if "proper way" is fix thousands of applications its
just not realistic - so ext4 (starting from 2.6.30) will try to save these
broken applications by default. And if you want performance - there are a
switch. Good enough for me. Can we close the discussion?
