To be clear, in my opinion -f should ignore -r and suppress the total
block count for -lgnos, and take a 'fast track' function where it just
prints directory entries as it encounters them, rather than reading
them all into memory and waiting until the end before (not) sorting
them and printing them all out at once. Otherwise why have the flag at all?
