Funny, that...  I'd been going through the damn thing for the
last week or so; open-by-fhandle/nfs export support is completely
buggered.  And as for the rest... the least said about the error
handling, the better - something like rename() hitting an IO
error (read one) can not only screw the on-disk data into the
ground, it can do seriously bad things to kernel data structures.

Is there anything resembling fsck for that thing, BTW?  Nevermind
the repairs, just the validity checks would be nice...

I am not aware of the fsck command for affs on Linux. There is a
partitioning tool called amiga-fdisk, but for checking a filesystem you
would need to use a tool under AmigaOS.

So, it should be made read-only FS, until the problems are
fixed (and there's linux-native FS consistency checker)?

Read-only mode should be enough for the data rescue purposes
mentioned in the list.
