Running 'e2fsck --help' shows a line saying "[-I
inode_buffer_blocks] [-P process_inode_size]", but the
man page does not mention nor describe the -I and -P
options.

Also, wouldn't it be clearer to list the parameterless
options "panyrcdfvstDFSV" in alphabetical order? And
to leave out the deprecated -a and dummy -r options:
"cdfknpstvyDFSV"? And finally, the -k is missing from
the usage message.

    This is still an issue.

    I would offer myself to document the options, but without further information I can only guess what they mean.
