The only problem looks like the message printing.
A GC pass is triggered by the mount process, finds no
garbage to collect, and does nothing.  Perfect!


1. Change nothing.  The software doesn't get confused, just the operator.

2. Add code to avoid the printk's when there are plenty of _free_ blocks.

3. Don't trigger the GC on mount unless there is something to do.
