> If you need data integrity (like database commits) you will need to enforce it from application with fsync etc or have a SSD which provides such guarantees.

having a SSD or battery backed cache does not replace doing fsyncs. If you don't do the fsync you don't know that the data is being written from the OS cache to the disk subsystem.
