No, LFS and journaling file systems are orthogonal. LFS is a different
beast from traditional file systems, whereas journaling file systems are
(typically) extentions to existing ones. LFS's different behavior has
plusses and minuses compared to FFS, so there'll be times when LFS is a
win, and times when it's a total loss. The advantage of having LFS is that
its "total loss" cases are different from FFSs, so that its possible to
pick one or the other and always have a well-performing file system.

Take care,
