    No matter how hard I try, I always read this as "DAMAGED". Which I
    can't help but imagine subliminally influences the reader's opinion of
    the patches.

    Of course I am excellent at naming things, see "chunkfs" and
    "relatime". But some ideas for naming various concepts in this patch:

    D_MIGHT_MOUNT
    D_CHILL_OUT
    D_ITS_COMPLICATED

    -VAL
