*Description :
Test 031 reproduces this one - it runs mkfs and then repairs
numerous different combinations of directory version and
directory size ... repair seems to get itself into trouble
without even mounting these filesystems (created using mkfs
prototype files).

To exercise this bug (use the sim mkfs/repair binaries, cos
we seem to trip an assert in libxfs-mkfs before completing):
$ cd cmd/xfs/sim
$ make

OK, so I've investigated the first part of this bug now, i.e. the
"rebuilding directory inode 128" message.  It turns out that this
is simply the way its designed to work... this message comes about
as a side effect of us deleting the existing lost+found entry in
the root directory (inode 128 in this QA test), and that message
is printed unconditionally later when we find we need to fix some
directory.  This is the case for all non-shortform v2 directories,
and is not a real problem after all.

Onto the "# of bmap records" error message next...
