As cache=off is necessary for clustering filesystems such as GFS (and  
such is the point of shareable, yes?), I believe this is correct

Comments?
    

  Yes that sounds right, if shared over network we should not cache
locally in the OS,

    applied and commited,

      thanks !

Daniel
cache=off should be the default case (or the similar O_DSYNC case).
cache=on should only be used for temporal usage and not really production data.
It's just unsafe to use caching if you data is important to you.
It's a hot issue in the qemu mailing list.
