I find it a terrible idea (for non enterprise deployments) to put the
journal on a separate disk. For one, most laptops (which are the
"workstations" of today) have only one disk; secondly it would split
the data from the journal which would make the movement of the disk
containing the data quite problematic (given that a desktop could have
more partitions with JFS than actual SSD drives).
