Okay, how afraid should I be of using async? man exports states:
async This option allows the NFS server to violate the NFS
and reply to requests before any changes made by that
have been committed to stable storage (e.g. disc drive).
Using this option might improve performance with
only, but at the cost that an unclean server restart
crash) can cause data to be lost or corrupted.
I tend to like to avoid data loss or corruption.
