Hi Wendell,

I just wanted to send you a progress report: After running all last
night, my fsck.gfs2 on your metadata is 39% into pass1.  So far it
has not found anything wrong, but it has a long way to go.

Fwiw, I recently wrote some performance improvements for gfs1's fsck,
(they're not available yet, except as a patch in the bugzilla)
and I hope to port them to gfs2's fsck when I can.  Unfortunately,
I need to get through this set of patches first before I can start
with that.
