'man mount' tells you what the options _are_ ... finding out what the

So, 'data=ordered' (default) means that the data is written to the file system
before the (meta)data is written to the journal.
And 'data=journal' means that the data is written to the journal before it is
written to the file system.
. . . and the journal is kind of a marker-database (the 'meta' part of the
data) that keeps track of the whats and the wheres of the actual data.
I guess I'd better be exploring this further ;-)
