Sorry for the delay in getting back to you; things have been pretty
busy this past week or two.  Can you get me small (preferably under
200k) sample filesystem images for the purposes of regression testing?

Also, the blkid library is in the process of being transferred to
util-linux-ng.  So I'm willing to apply the patches, but they also
need to be ported to the version of the blkid library in util-linux-ng
to make sure this feature doesn't get lost when distributions start
transitioning to util-linux-ng.
