Check numbers of items and subitems in all lists and compare to number 
in header. Remove all items and subitems with negative ttl.

Parameter 0 = do not correct, 1 = correct.

Check local non-generic lists. First parameter correct, second check 
inode numbers of all FD items whether they exist and are valid on 
filesystem (only for ext2/ext3).
