Older releases used to have enabled the "uninit_bg" feature.

Hm, it's been broken for some time.

    mke2fs.conf: add back missing uninit_bg feature flag
    Commit 0da058af9f88: "mke2fs.conf: don't enable metadata_csum by
    default" removed metadata_csum without adding back the uninit_bg flag
    --- which had the net result of causing file systems to take a long
    time to mke2fs, since this caused all of the block group metadata to
    be initialized.

Should this really be closed as RAWHIDE? How about building e2fsprogs-1.43.4 for f25?
