 There's a distinct possibility that you might be able to just rewrite
 the partition table/disklabel, fsck using an alternate superblock, and
 then patch up whatever else got trashed, depending on just how far it
 I wouldn't think it would have got much further than attempting to
 read the partition table and disklabel, and it's unreasonable for it
 to have trashed anything it didn't try reading. Then again, it's
 unreasonable for this to happen at all, so who knows... :-/
