I saw the dirhash message, too, during bootup.  Had a Google around, saw
someone else say something similar, I wondered if this new unexplained
"dirhash" was simply the informational comments after a hash mark being
added to the fstab file.  However, my fstab file is unchanged.

e.g. The entries are just a list like this, one per mount point:
     LABEL=donga/home  /home  ext3  defaults  1 2

Now I'm wondering if dirhash means adding some sort of checksum to a
filing system.  "Hash" being a term that I've heard used to describe a
checksum (they do look like a wierd hash-up of characters jumbled
