When things get stuffed badly enough that you get SUID block device files
appearing out of no-where a chmod won't fix it.  "debugfs" appears to be the
only possibly solution.
I believe that Ted is working on e2fsck support for getting the file system
to a state where "rm" will work.

This is what they pay me for.
