I'd intended to use at least fhstat in lfs_cleanerd (if it continues to
exist as a user process, which one can certainly argue against) to do file
coalescing; it would seem that other filesystem utilities could make good
use of the fh* calls, and it would be a shame to see them disappear
entirely (though I must admit, having them enabled for non-root users or
using them for higher-level applications sounds like a loser to me).
