	It's due to Resierfs housekeeping.  That represents a 2.2%
overhead, for filesystem housekeeping, which isn't too bad.  I'm a
little surprised it's that large.  I wouldn't be if it were ext2, and
would actually expect it to be more, but it's certainly within the realm
of reasonableness.

Have fun (if at all possible),
