comment Rock-stable filesystem for large files (backups) for linux
Yeah, I am not sure if you can disable the feature, but the xfs_freeze utility ensures a stable disk image. From the man page: The -f flag requests the specified XFS filesystem to be frozen from new modifications. When this is selected, all ongoing transactions in the filesystem are allowed to complete, new write system calls are halted, other calls which modify the filesystem are halted, and all dirty data, metadata, and log information are written to disk. Any process attempting to write to the frozen filesystem will block waiting for the filesystem to be unfrozen.

comment Allow setuid on shell scripts
I would advise against the suggestion to allow passing of the script as a command line argument, as that essentially gives anyone who can execute the program the ability to run any script as that defined user.
