At least for now there is a good possibility to lose data on an ext4
partition if a power loss or system crash occurs (see bug 317781)

The current workaround, as I understand it, reduces much of ext4's
performance gains. So, unless you really need more than 32000 subdirs,
nanosecond timestamps and have files over 16TB I would recommend waiting
till the issues are fixed.
