That reminds me...
The dlfs_cksum should be at the end of the superblock, not before the padding.
With it in its current position, if you ever end up using fields after
the checksum, either:
(a) they won't be checksummed, or
(b) you'll have to bump the fs level.
Given that the only thing that checks the checksum is your (not yet
checked in) fsck_lfs, perhaps now is the right time to move the checksum
to the end of the superblock, and put the pad in front of it.
