The second is surely faster but less safe.

=46or recent (IIRC >=3D 2.6.9, at least) the difference of performance is=20
acceptable; however, in case of a host crash (a guest crash shouldn't creat=
a problem), with the second one you would get big problems on guest reboot=
(especially if you use journaled filesystems, especially like reiserfs,=20
because they want to be able to force datas out on the disk).
