I use fast-restart as well, although the way to go is demand attach. 
Perhaps this can be pulled into a 1.4.X release candidate for testing? 
Some of us do not want to make the leap to the 1.5.x branch for 
production use.

Any downsides of switching from salvager to demand attach?  Affect namei 
or inode fileservers?
