comment targeting a specific block with e2fsck to shorten wait
I have not had any problems with ext4 filesystems (other than with bad disks). If you are concerned be sure to keep patched up with the current release of the ext4 software package.

comment How long does a ssh connection last?
I don't definitely know, nor can anybody here, depends on a lot of things, networking, host problems at either end, timeouts put in firewalls or even timeouts in shells.......so this really is a useless question without definitive answers.

comment How to list killable tasks?
Your example is flawed in that a find command is not always in D state. It might be at the instant that you did the PS. If I see a D consistently for a long time in a process it may be due to some error/or hung driver to an external device.

comment How to securely allow scp, but not ssh
I have Ubuntu and it has this man page. Other Linux versions apparently do not have this man page (from your comment). I'm sure you can use your browser and look for the authorized_keys in google, can't you?
