    It's the first time, I've tried this patch and I must say, that
    the first impression is very good indeed.

    I took a real world directory (my linux-kernel MH folder containing
    roughly 115000 files) and did a 'du -s' on it.

    Without the patch it took a little more than 20 minutes to complete.

    With the patch, it took less than 20 seconds. (And that was inside uml)

    However, when I accidentally killed the uml, it left me with an unclean
    filesystem which fsck refuses to touch because it has unsupported features.

    Even the latest version does this.

    Is there a patch for fsck, that fixes this somewhere?

    Best regards
