Really, I cannot feel the kidding.
Every fsck that works while the data is online is very welcome. No matter if
we talk about glusterfs or any other fs.
The real problem of linux today is the offline fsck with cryptic output. In
times of TBs of data being offline is a no-go.
This is what makes glusterfs the most important project throughout the
community. It _solves_ a really urgent problem (when it performs stable).
btrfs btw solves only already solved problems... no idea why it hypes.
