Kernel compilation shouldn't be necessary; just load the module.
There are a whole pile of ffs options you can pass in to linux's ffs
module, if you don't pick the right ones you'll have an unreadable
filesystem or you'll corrupt it entirely.
Also, if you chose custom fragment and block sizes you may need to add
those block and fragment sizes into the "supported" combinations and
recompile the ffs module. feh!
GDB has a 'break' feature; why doesn't it have 'fix' too?
