libata EH won't lose any data as long as the hardware doesn't.  If power
fluctuates causing your drive to briefly power down - this does happen
and you can hear the drive doing emergency unload when it happens, the
data in write buffer can be lost.  On coming back, all that libata can
know is that the PHY suffered brief connection loss, so it resets the
device and goes on, so the data in the cache is lost now.  It's
basically pulling the power plug from the harddrive while write is going
on and connecting it back quickly.  You're bound to lose data.
