That's the way I've always looked at it. I've always thought the -W1
flag was redudant, as well as a bit dangerous. If you've already enabled
asynchrounous access, you have "lazy" writes from the kernel. The only
other thing I've got to add, is that the only time I've had FS
corruption problems using XFS is when I experimented with -W1 and had an
unclean shutdown. Not worth it in my opinion.

This is agreed, about the -W1 flag. Wouldn't asynchronous IO solve this
