Summary

Helder Novais pointed out on July 9th via the doc@freebsd.org list that the note about journalling on ext4 was not strong enough.

Fix that (and, while here, add ext4 to the FAQ).

Is that warning applicable to base system support, to sysutils/fusefs-ext2, or both? (Given its position in the text and with no indication of scope, it reads as applicable to sysutils/fusefs-ext2 only.)

Clarify situation muddied by mention of the port.

Clarified; thanks. It's supposed to apply to both. I want to discourage people from using read-write support at all, I think.

I see you also removed "Starting with FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE, a DTrace provider will be available as well." but the review summary doesn't explain why. Accidental overdeletion?

It wasn't appropriate for a WARNING, so I moved it higher up - see new line 89.

Oh, right, missed it.
