    Indeed. I posted about this the other day. ext2 is welcome to 'barf', but
    it's not welcome to take out my entire bloody machine just for the sake of
    it. What is wrong with gracefully failing the mount, I don't know! Instead
    we'll just hang immediately and risk data loss... better hope that fsck at
    next boot goes ok >-/
