Hi Ted,

that seems a bit confusing. Since delalloc is the default how would the
user know that it will be disabled if data=journalled mode is used ?
That said, if users are complaining about the warning so lets at least
add this information into mount man page, but if they are not I am not
sure that we really need to change that.

Thanks!
