If mkreiserfs was slower, I would suggest printing them at the start of
the program. It gives people something to read while they're waiting for
it to finish. (They would probably be more likely to read it, too.)
It takes less than 4 seconds on a regular file of 410M here, though, so
that's not a whole lot of time. Does it take longer on bigger
filesystems? Lots of people are making many-gigabyte filesystems these
days, so perhaps that really is a good idea.
mkreiserfs creates bitmaps, and bitmap count depends on partition size,
so it will take longer time on bigger partitions.
