Well, it seems the patch I sent either isn't holding or never got committed.
I received word from core that the patch had been applied.

Since it hasn't been applied to the distributed source tree, I present it
here.  Maybe there was a mix-up or something; I send-pr'd it and received
a closure before the feature freeze date.

Anyway, here it is:  fsck/preen.c diffs which allow one to say, for example,
# fsck /usr
and have it do The Right Thing.
