    I suggest:                                # provide crash safety by
    flushing disk writes
                                               # (Disabling this can
    lead to unrecoverable data
                                               # loss if the system
    crashes.)


+1 for the change. I suggest shortening it to just "disabling this can
lead to unrecoverable data corruption" (I think corruption is better
than loss, mainly because too many people equate loss with "i may loose
my last 10 updates, and I'm fine with that).


+1 (Abhijit's wording with data loss changed to data corruption)
