This is very interesting, but as I've already made my filesystem (and don't
relish the thought of wiping it out and doing it over again) the option on mkfs
is not useful to me. But I might be able to use the logbufs option. Do I just
put it in my /etc/fstab file and then reboot? How much memory is ``enough''?
How do I tell how many log buffers I've got at present?
