Thanks for bring this issue to the dev list, James.

I was the author of "fsfsfixer". I'd be grateful however if any other
devs could comment or assist.

I am involved in trying to both debug and fix this corruption.

(That's very unlikely to be the cause, actually.)

We haven't determined yet whether the checksum mismatch is because the
data is corrupted or just the checksum is wrong. The desire to use
fsfsfixer (which, if it works on FSFS f6, can rewrite the stored
checksum) is based on an assumption of the latter, and/or that we don't
really care that much if the content is corrupted because the files are
mostly build results that don't often need to be referred to again.

I have a feeling we discussed this before but can't currently find the
discussion. Anyone remember?
