Thanks, we'll fix that.

This is the way it has always worked. Normally, you would run fsck
from the command line, and it contains the code to parse /etc/fstab and
translate the mount point to the device. Then fsck would call fsck.jfs
with the device. If you invoke fsck.jfs directly, and for that matter
e2fsck, etc., you must specify the device.
