As concluded in following thread and mentioned by mount(8), mounting
filesystems with 'async' flags can lead to corruption and should be avoided if
data loss isn't calculated risk. But official documentation about power
management contains following statements:
You can place commands inside of these scripts to change the power management
settings when using battery or line power. Here are some example scripts:
mount -u -o async,noatime,nodevmtime /
mount -u -o async,noatime /usr
atactl wd0 setidle 5
BTW: mentioned on WWW /usr/share/examples/apm sample script, at least
on -current, doesn't contains 'async' flag in remount command for 'battery'
