The man page for fsck states:
'The format of a filesystem can be determined from the
first line of output from dumpfs(8)'.
Two points - the first (trivial) is it appears to be the second line
not the first line of the output, and the other is that for a
sunos filesystem I get "cylgrp dynamic inodes 4.2/4.3BSD"
and for a level 3 I get "cylgrp dynamic inodes 4.4BSD".
Nowhere is it documented what level 0, 1, 2, and 3 relate to
in this output.
I think there should be a simple number in the output of dumpfs
that corresponds to the arguments given to 'fsck -c', otherwise
the only way I have of really knowing the level of a filesystem
is to 'fsck -c' it and abort!
Have some filesystems you do not know the level of, then try to work
out the level.
