Description of problem:
dir_index is mature, and helpful for large filesystems. it should be turned on
by default. it is not practical to expect users to turn it on manually.
please consider also raising the bytes per inode ratio from 8192 bytes/inode
to something larger (say double that).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkfs -t ext3 /dev/whatever
2. tune2fs -l /dev/whatever
Actual Results: no dir_index
Expected Results: dir_index
With e2fsprogs-1.39-1 dir_index is enabled by default.
Thomas still not resolved is "consider also raising the bytes per inode ratio
from 8192 bytes/inode to something larger (say double that).", but it that case
new bug should be opened, right?
Yes, please open another bug for this.
