I have an understanding about journal_data_ordered and journal_data_writeback. Please tell me whether it is correct or not.


In this type meta data will be journaled and data will be forced to be written into disk before any changes happen.


In this type meta data will be journaled and data may be written into disk before meta data commits to the journal.

Is this correct?
