[Tux3] Suggested project... extend fsx-linux to test metadata

A suggested project for somebody who would like to get involved...

Hirofumi swears by fsx-linux as a filesystem tester, because it logs all 
operations and tests for valid file data.  But it does not test 
directory operations at all.  Other filesystem stress tests out there 
do test directory operations, but are not as useful as fsx-linux.  
Somebody could make themselves very popular by adding metadata test 
functionality to fsx-linux.  The idea would be to maintain in memory a 
list of which names should exist in which directories after each 
operation and check the filesystem by comparing to results of readdir 
and fstat.
