Based on the post above seems that phy will have important risk of data
loss if I understand good, from Ian Campbell post:
xl also uses qdisk for raw disk images instead of loop+blkback which
xend used, because there are concerns that the loop driver can lead to
data loss (by not implementing direct i/o the underlying device, and/or
not handling flushes correct, my memory is a bit fuzzy).
Stefano already corrected me on this in this very thread.


Thanks for your reply.
I saw other posts about and if I understand good when O_DIRECT patches will be in upstream loop driver the data loss risk will be solved, right?
