BTW, if this "removing immutable bits" business takes too long, and you're sure
you don't have files with the immutable bit set in your Nix store, you can
bypass this operation by doing:

  $ echo -n 7 > /nix/var/nix/db/schema

And you can clear any immutable bits asynchronously by running:

  $ chattr -R -i /nix/store
