Synopsis: mounting volumes with -o async speeds up file write operations 500% (5 times)

Mouting file systems with the async is evil and very dangerous.
From the mount(8) man page:
             async       All I/O to the file system should be done asyn-
                         chronously.  In the event of a crash, it is
                         impossible for the system to verify the integrity of
                         data on a file system mounted with this option.  You
                         should only use this option if you have an applica-
                         tion-specific data recovery mechanism, or are willing
                         to recreate the file system from scratch.

I think this PR should be closed.
