A not-so-gentle introduction to fsck, vnconfig and panics on dirty 
filesystems. :)

I got most of it back, but it was not simple.  There's still stuff on 
there but fsck has some "interesting" limitations on how many files will 
fit in lost+found.  I filed a pr on that one; if I knew a bit more C I 
could fix it.  Right now I have a custom fsck that rather than blindly 
deleting things when lost+found has filled, it exits and then I manually 
move stuff out of lost+found, then rinse + repeat.  Very time-consuming.
