mtree dies in post_upgrade_command during upgrade from 8.x and earlier
When running the mtree post-upgrade from 2.1x or earlier, mtree will run partially through but eventually die with a file descriptors error. Likely need to keep a copy of the original mtree as mtree.old and use that post-upgrade. This also seems to make the post-upgrade reboot fail in some cases.
I was testing a 2.1.5 to 2.2.3 upgrade for something else and noticed that mtree ran OK (see the attached upgrade log), though I don't see a commit that specifically mentioned this ticket or mtree.
i attempted 2.1.4 to 2.2.2 48hours ago it ran into this error many times, never rebooted on its own

Renato's proposed patch looks to work fine here in circumstances where problems were previously replicable. That should be fine to commit, then will re-test.

confirmed upgrades on 1.2.3, 2.0.3, 2.1.5, 2.2.2, including both 32 and 64 bit for all 2.x. All fine.
