Subject: [PATCH] mke2fs: Inform user about ongoing discard

Since there are some slow SSD's out there and big thinly provisioned
storages on which it takes quite long to issue discard through whole
device, it would be nice to provide user the information about what is
going on and how long it will take (approximately).
