To make this clear: gjournal implements a journaled block device, which
is conceptionally similiar to filesystem journaling, but can't replace
it nor is it intended do. It is just a similiar, but different problem.

One major difference is that it simply can't avoid the fsck after a
crash. It doesn't know about fileysystem internals for once.
