Thanks, I think most of the ext4 developers have already read these papers.
They are definitely of interest, and reducing e2fsck time is a very important
area of development these days.

We have already implemented the IRON FS journal checksumming feature, and
this will go into ext4 shortly.  There is lots of work needed in order to
implement checksumming for the rest of the filesystem, so if you are
interested to work on this please let us know.

Cheers, Andreas
