Whooppee but if I drive the box totally out of memory with several of
these file systems I can cause all sorts of problems due to missing null
checks, and I can feed some others such as reiserfs (why do we still ship
that ?) corrupt disk images and patch the kernel that way.

So surely we ought to be fixing the actual bugs first ?
