When did XFS start looking like reiserfs?

Lots of protection for your data? Let's see, super aggressive caching 
and no data journaling only metadata journaling, what on earth are you 
blabbering about?

Use XFS with anything that has no BBU cache support or barrier support 
and recent files are toast when there is a crash or sudden power failure.

Nah, XFS has historically been the fastest at writing and also the most 
dangerous filesystem available on Linux.
