Hi Xin,
I guess you missed my email to you about this.  I was hoping to get an
answer to this before it was MFC'ed.
The use of 'C' conflicts with a Juniper Networks change Juniper wants to
push back to FreeBSD.  

For Juniper the -C flag is the "clean" flag.  Meaning don't do anything
if the FS is clean, other wise do as full a fsck as possible (vs. just
a "preen" fsck).  It is useful as 'fsck -C -y /var' (for instance).

Do you think your functionality could live under the "-D" (damaged)
option?  fsck_ffs already had a "-c" option, or Juniper would have
used that letter.
