Thanks Bob, but I was sort of hoping for an option of doing "yes to all" once
you've already started the fsck. I'm not exactly sure if there is any fallout to
stopping gfs_fsck part way through it's repair operations on a broken GFS volume.

Not to worry - Does anyone know what's going on with that weird 'Fix bitmap for
block' number continually changing when you press the Enter key?

I suppose this is a weird gfs_fsck display quirk when the response is not a 'y'
or a 'n'.
