The comments there may be useful for your needs. BTW, I understand that the man shred page says that shred may be ineffective in RESIERFS for single files but it is equally useful if you shred the entire partition.

That is, shred doesn't work on individual files in jouranaling filesystems but the entire partition is no issue.
