    The defragfs tool was an unported holdover from OS/2, which is why it
    was removed. There never was a working Linux version. I have some
    ideas to improve jfs allocation to avoid fragmentation problems, but jfs
    isn't my full-time job anymore, so I can't promise anything. I'm not
    sure about the corruption claims. I'd like to hear some specifics on

    Anyway, for enterprise use, I couldn't recommend jfs, since there is no
    full-time maintainer.
