One thing that isn't entirely clear: how do fsck and quotacheck behave
for passno > 1?  I get the impression (both from the man page and from
previous mailing list discussions) that all file systems with a passno
above 1 are treated equally, rather than being ranked by their passno.
This is highly undesirable on systems that use labels instead of disk /
slice / partition names, since fsck and quotacheck will think all the
file systems are on different drives, when in fact they may all be on
the same drive.
