[fedora-arm] Changing / from xfs to ext4 ?

I'm using an RPi with Fedora 27 (of course !) in an environment where it sometimes loses power and shuts down prematurely.  This has a tendency to corrupt the xfs filesystem that / resides on.

As most of you probably know, it is much, much easier to repair a file system error with other file systems, ext4, for example.  It is very time consuming to repair an error on an xfs file system.

What would be the disadvantage to mounting / on an ext4 fs rather than xfs ?  What changes would be needed elsewhere to acomodate this ?


Special thanks to the Fedora arm people for all their hard work !
