Subject:  why not allow checksumming of file contents, too?


there is already checksumming of metadata.  having a file-system option of
checksumming every file's contents upon closing the write would be very
convenient, too.  It would only take an extra few bytes in the file descriptor,
wouldn't it?  It would be nice insurance against hardware corruption.  zfs has
it, too, I believe.  just a suggestions from someone who is just an end user...
