BTW, Documentation/filesystems/ext4.txt in current linux repo seems to contradict your statement. I can understand how delayed allocation can affect the situation (since certain data need never be written to the disk at all, even if metadata changes), but for allocated data, how does the ext4 situation differ from ext3 writeback mode?
