The fsck is now running after we added the 137Gb swap drive.  It appears
to consistently chew about 4Gb of RAM (sometimes higher) but it is
working (for now).

Any ballpark idea of how long it'll take to fsck a 45Tb FS?  I know
that's a "how long is a piece of string" question, but are we talking
hours/days/weeks?
