I suspect that is historical so that we don't surprise people who've not
been used to that feature when they upgrade their kernels. In GFS2 it
defaults to fast.

I'm also trying (gradually) to ensure that there is a way to set all
parameters via the mount command line in GFS2 and therefore to avoid
having to run special programs after mount to set such parameters. We
are not there yet, but we are pretty close now I think,
