Hi all,

so what mkfs progress format would you prefer? For now we have 
    Initializing journal - 0%....20%....40%....60%....80%....100%
progress and the same can be done for bitmap initializing. Do you want us
to unite them into one progress bar? 
It seems that mkreiserfs is not a problem here as it takes ~5-10secs on 
1Tb partition, however we will gladly make these changes to satisfy your
