Data integrity sounds great, but data integrity without performance
You've got that backwards in a major way.
Performance without data integrity is totally useless. You may as
well turn off your computers and go back to pen and paper.
Heh. Well, I do care for my data (RAID6 and multiple backup
I have never lost any data because of softdeps, so I don't consider
big risk in my case.
You've clearly never had a crash/outage during the middle of a large
build or something accessing a lot of files.
I've had times I had to fsck, it fills /lost+found, clear that out and
repeat multiple times before things came back...
Without decent performance, I could go back to pen and paper as well.
I thought softdeps were helping reads as well, but maybe I was wrong.
In that case, journalling sounds great.
