filesystem is mounted, but invisible if you create it when the filesystem is
unmounted. Probably because you can't mess with the filesystem too much when
its mounted without confusing the filesystem driver, so creating hidden files
is out of the question. In either case, I created my journal with the
filesystem mounted, and it created a visible, immutable .journal file in my
root directory, and my filesystem has yet to explode.

it's unset once you umount. In the event of power failure, the flag will be
left set, and fsck knows the it has to recover the filesytem. Pretty clever,
