[opensuse] opensuse 10.2 feature question

I was just reading the kernel newbies page about the new features in

And saw:
FAT: Add "-o flush" mount option for fat for removable media devices
(USB flash-based memory devices, MP3 players). Mounting with -o flush
tells FAT to write things to disk as quickly as possible. It is like
-o sync, but much faster (and not as safe). Think of it like a fast
"async" mount (commit)

Does anyone know if this is in the SUSE 10.2 kernel?

And if so, if the SUSE automount logic is using this flag instead of
-o sync like 10.1 does?
