ext4: Don't use delayed allocation by default when used instead of ext3
Jan Kara [Thu, 25 Mar 2010 00:18:37 +0000 (20:18 -0400)]
When ext4 driver is used to mount a filesystem instead of the ext3 file
system driver (through CONFIG_EXT4_USE_FOR_EXT23), do not enable delayed
allocation by default since some ext3 users and application writers have
developed unfortunate expectations about the safety of writing files on
systems subject to sudden and violent death without using fsync().
