Hi all,

Let's say I have a filesystem that has a blocksize of 1Mb. Yes, you
read that right.   And I happened to know that there are a lot of very
small files in there.

Is there an each way to report how much disk space this is costing me?
All I can think of is using du or ls across the thing and then back
calculating.  Also, I don't think I have df access.
