Not terribly efficient? That's a bit of an understatement :-)
The findup component of fslint is MUCH quicker, and it's
also written in bash. A quick test against two 2.4.17 trees gives:

1m36s for ./findup /usr/src/linux[12] | ./fstool/mergeDup
18m17s for ./freedups -a /usr/src/linux[12]

Note mergeDup was a quick hack and took 1m30s of findup's time!
I'm going to rewrite it in python ASAP to help with this.

You can download the current version of fslint from
http://developers.antefacto.net/~padraig/fslint.tar.gz

Padraig.
