virt-top is 'top' for virtual machines.  Tiny program with many
powerful monitoring features, net stats, disk stats, logging, etc.

Subject: [PATCH] NTFS: Invoke mkfs ntfs with -Q option.

By default mkfs.ntfs writes zeroes and does bad block detection
over the whole disk.  This is slow and unnecessary in the virtual
case.  Pass -Q option to avoid this.
