I've built a copy of 1.38 here:


I've also updated the build notes to reflect this.

Probably this should be merged into our base & various future cds.
I don't see any remarkable changes, but it does appear to fix various
data typing issues and may work better on very large filesystems.

I originally did this because I had a machine with bad blocks
in the root partition and checkfs was booting up anyways after
fsck failed.  I think now that the fault was in checkfs.
