I tried that, but I must be missing something. I got from dumpe2fs that
the journal is in inode 8, but doing stat 8 in debugfs gives me an error
since stat expects a filename for an argument.

Any other ideas? I was kinda hoping there would be a simple command I
could run that would give me this info without having to calculate
