   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.
