	I can live with that, but I would prefer that to be a superblock
flag force-set in ->mount() (and preserved in ->remount_fs()) rather than
Yet Another FS Type Flag.  OTOH, it's not hard to change afterwards.

	Al, bloody annoyed by having spent hours debugging an odd corruption

host ;-/  Seem to be all gone after replacing CPU fan and cleaning the
