Yeah, this is nice-looking stuff, thanks.

Beware that the code which you've borrowed from ext2 has had several really
subtle problems over the past few years. Stress-testing of this new code
(especially on small-blocksize filesystems and under memory pressure) might
reveal defects. Still, it could hardly be worse than the present situation.

Does anyone know of a good way of creating UFS filesytems under Linux? I
had a go at porting BSD ufsutils a few years ago and nearly died. There's, but that hasn't been touched in a couple
of years..
