Ok, I see now (forwarded to workplace):
I think you really should RTFM. There are quite some options:
Ensure that a minimum of free-files free files (inodes) exist in
the image. An optional '%' suffix may be provided to indicate that
free-files indicates a percentage of the calculated image size.
avgfpdir Expected number of files per directory.
density Bytes per inode.
I’d say your best bet is to use -f without ‘%’ – you should know beforehand
though roughly how many new inodes (symlinks, devices (probably not, due to
devfs), temp files) you’ll need; they’re allocated in groups, so a guessti-
mate is okay.
Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font. -- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
