Any severe corruption is likely to trigger the kernel's own sanity
checks, at which point a check will be forced anyway. Otherwise we seem
to be optimising for a massively uncommon case at the expense of
everyone else. If ext3 had a habit of introducing corruption, we'd know
about it by now. We should just skip the time and count based checks.
