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.
uh, doesn't sysinst already use -o async when it can?
it isn't dangerous for fresh installs. upgrades maybe, but not installs.
