And new bugs are introduced, and if they are for a non-default option
like (now) data=ordered, they won't get noticed in time, and they
won't get fixed for quite some time; at least that's what the
non-default data=journal episode teaches. So what's higher: the risk
of data loss from a well-known kernel, or from a new kernel in a
non-default setting? Choosing the latter seems foolish to me.
Modifying fstab is not a big deal, why would I want to avoid it.
The problem with doing it in the superblock is that I have to do it
again when I transfer the system to another disk.
