would love to see this since the following commands are common to improve ext4 perf. The only option now is to attach to a different linux box

tune2fs -o journal_data_writeback /dev/sda1
tune2fs -O has_journal /dev/sda1
e2fsck -f /dev/sda1
dumpe2fs /dev/sda1

including tune2fs would be incredibly helpful - we now have to attach to a linux vm or boot a linux cd such as parted magic

The following will also reduce wasted space on large drives

tune2fs -m1 /dev/sda1

I just read the build script and found that tune2fs is a separate package (same with resize2fs). This report can be reduced to just including dumpe2fs
