not true.
it is very unlinkey case you will not be able to mount. you will not be 
able to read everything.

copying to new disks with skipping errors (dd conv=sync,noerror) and doing 
fsck_ffs basically would recover everything that can be recovered.

UFS use flat on disk structure. inodes are at known places.

I don't know how HAMMER data is placed, but seems everything is dynamic.

any link to description of HAMMER on disk layout?
