Greetings. I just had a RAID crash which required some recovery with 

Two problems with fsck_ffs in 5.2 were discovered:

1. There is a divide-by-0 error that happens under some conditions when 
the contents of the superblock and the backup superblock are partially 

	=>Would you like a fix for this?

2. There is no obvious functionality to scan the whole hard-drive for 
backup superblocks.

	=> I've written such a program. If I integrate it into fsck, will you 
take the mods?
