Thierry: Half joking, I'll point out that anybody can have root on an
Ubuntu system for an hour for only $0.10 with EC2.

More seriously: If the benefit of the rsync approach is only to increase
the number of inodes, perhaps the original mke2fs could be run with the
-N option to increase the number of inodes to something reasonable for
both 2GB and 10GB.

The truncate method certainly seems like it would be faster than the
rsync.
