to ensure consistency you should turn off physical drive caches, and
degrade performance significantly, sometimes up to 1000x. if this is
what you want, you may use either zfs or sync ufs. in such case you may
be almost sure that your filesystems are consistent. but if you use
drive's cache, then without UPS you will face data loss and vanished
filesystem earlier or later
