Chris, I think this is actually a good idea. It seems that a lot of
users like to use ReiserFS and ext3 despite all our warnings in the
documentation. This and the big scheduler query are the top two reasons
for corrupted recordings with MythTV. Solving this on the recorder side
is a lot more complicated than this little fix..
