Perhaps I'm a little confused,
Both of us recognize that ext3's data=ordered mode was responsible for people deciding that fsync() was harmful
Is your use of the word "harmful" implying a performance hit only? I'm convinced that fsync() is (relatively) safe and reliable, all other discussions here, there, anywhere, and in POSIX, aside.
The O_PONIES bit (and related T-shirt) was an interesting bit of humor—I like it!
