I had some random corruption during the 1.6 -current series, which I
presume is down to it being in a permanent state of experimentation.
I'd say before even thinking about putting it into production, test that
it actually is faster for your needs than regular FFS. I found that using
bonnie at least, it was actually slower, especially on writes where LFS
was designed to excel.
My 2c, don't bother.
