Since I turn off disk write caching that bypasses the problem of write barriers being disabled in such kernels. For backups, I use DAR (like tar but with granular checksums for easier recovery from corruption) and rsnapshot, which is rsync-based, but a true backup system as it saves multiple versions and runs very fast, like rsync - works very well as long as you don't have very large files that change frequently.
