on popular demand (I got many PMs on that topic after it has been brought up in the thread) I finally decided to release my ext4 remount script I am using for many months now together with Semaphore Kernel versions and file system converted to ext4.
It does nothing else than putting a small script into the init.d folder which gets executed everytime the phone starts and then remounts all 4 partitions with a commit time of 15 seconds. It does NOT remove journaling, change the writeback strategy from orderd to writeback or any other stuff, so it can be treated as fairly safe.
What should it improve? There is no confirmed status as such, but from my personal experience I feel the phone a bit more smooth and performant (as it does not do writes to the file system instantly when not required) and maybe it safes a bit battery. But only my personal opinion. You can give it a try yourself and decice.
thanks for your answer, very good to get your opinion on that.
I decided to go for very safe settings for now, which I used for months without issues. I remember I had some issues with barriers set to 0 in the past.
But I might provide a second version of the add-on with more aggressive settings as well for users that are willing to take some risk
