I did a very ugly hack to see if there was a big difference.
on my FS(¨~62 MB flash partition, 31% in use) it took
12.2 sec to mount with my ugly hack and it
tackes 13.3 sec without the ugly hack.
I guess it's not worth it.

Yes, I once commented out all crc checking in scan just to see what happened
and there was a difference, but I can not remeber how much.

I have seen alot of posts about it but I have no idea on how to proceed
Would checkpointing still speed up mount when power is cut and then
