Please expose the IgnoreFlush option to the GUI

Hello, As I already experienced some data loss, I decided to play safe and to disable the IgnoreFlush option (default is enabled) on all of the disks of my virtual machines with important data (like my personal VCS server). The command line I use is: VBoxManage setextradata "testvm" "VBoxInternal/Devices/ahci/0/LUN#[0]/Config/IgnoreFlush" 0 That is a bit inconvenient and also error prone, as the disks doesn't take it, if for example the command above -which works for AHCI devices- is given to a disk connected to a different device (VM won't start anymore). For convenience I'd like to be able to set this in the GUI.

Can I vote for this ticket ?

This is possibly the most critical user operable setting for anyone who cares about their data and downtime.

Please make this as simple as a tick box, since it is easy to make a mistake on the command, and you won't be notified, it will just silently fail.

Thank you for all your other great work too :)
