Will barrier support for ext3 be enabled by default for FC3 or errata kernel



Hi, Looking at the latest bk tree via bkbits.net, I see that barrier
support for ext3/reiserfs has been added into 2.6.9-pre. Will Fedora
Core 3 automatically mount with write barriers enabled for ext3
filesystem on a new install/upgrade. 

What about a future FC2 kernel errata ?

Also, can anybody tell if there is feature parity between ext3/reiserfs
in terms of barrier support. Are fsync as well as journal commits safe
with barrier+write-back caching enabled ?

Regards, Yusuf
