But the journal is passing through on-disk controller, too. If the drive is

if journal writes are "direct", the drive could be ignoring that (i.e. caches
it nevertheless) without flushing it prior to power-off, corrupting the journal
as well.

If the FS survives through reboots, but falters when the laptop is power
cycled, then a cache flush issue is still probable.

Another test method might be hibernation. If resume from hibernation works,
then that rules out on-disk caching problem.

Thanks Abdullah,

(Somehow your message went to spam)

I'll try hibernation test. Good idea. This behaviour has to have something to do with cache. I don't see how this could happen otherwise.
