Only now got around to creating an FS with similar characteristics to

Unless objections arise, I’ll just add a \$ to each pattern to fix that.
(I could also just swap the lines, but that isn’t really right.)
Can you share how to create file system which reproduces this?
Maybe adding the details in the test would be useful.
