No such *_lfs iplementations exist, so Jonathan is about all you've
got, unless you'd care to write them. Because of the file system's
symantics, many of those logical tools are... non-trivial to apply.

I'm surprised by the implication that fsck_lfs(8) actually does
something these days. Last I heard it was good mostly for breaking

Perhaps lfs_cleanerd(8)'s -d flag is what you're after, at least to
see what's broken? (It'd be a Good Idea not to have a daemonized
lfs_cleanerd running at the same time, of course.)

Without some more information regarding what's actually wrong with
your LFS partition, it's pretty hard for anybody to suggest ways to
fix it.
