So benchmarking JFS against file systems that are engineered to be safe against power failures, such as ext4 and XFS, isn't particularly fair. You can disable cache flushes for both ext4 and XFS, but would you really want to run in an unsafe configuration for production servers? And JFS doesn't even have an option for enabling barrier support, so you can't make it run safely without fixing the file system code.
