Dear devs, dear readers!

I installed 12.1 Milestone 1 on Virtual Box (Packard Bell EasyNote LJ61)
and tried to boot KDE now. The normal bootscreen came, but then the
console said the following:

FIBMAP: Invalid argument
FIBMAP: Invalid argument
(so on.....)

then the normal log-in came:

This isn't new. The FIBMAP ioctl tries to determine the actual block on disk
that a file is using. Most likely it's coming from preload, the tool that
tries to check what things are in use and load them into memory so they will
start quicker on future boots, and it is probably trying to map something that
doesn't support mapping, such as a tmpfs or similar

This message has been around forever. At some point someone should probably
fix the preload code to check to see if the filesystem in question supports
mapping before trying to do it, and just hide the error message
