Debugfs is a very natural name, but it will undoubtedly cause
confusion since we already have debugfs(8) in e2fsprogs. One is a
filesystem, and the other is a user-mode command, so it's not a total
name collision, but it could cause some communication mixups.

On the other hand, I couldn't think of a better name, so perhaps we
should just live with it. I did want to point out the potential
problem now while there's still a chance to change it, though....
