Description Rob Kenna 2007-06-05 10:17:16 EDT
ext2/3 support file system labels and uuid's (different bz) which are useful for
specifying in fstab for mount.
Comment 1 Rob Kenna 2007-06-05 10:20:28 EDT
Expected to fit in current on disk format in compatible fashion.
Comment 2 Kiersten (Kerri) Anderson 2007-11-02 16:53:09 EDT
Defering to 5.3.
Comment 6 Steve Whitehouse 2008-10-15 05:18:04 EDT
Now in upstream, changes required are trivial.

Comment 15 Steve Whitehouse 2009-07-14 08:32:47 EDT
We already has something similar to a label (the lock table) so we didn't add anything extra for that. We did add the UUID though since that was a new field in the super block.

This bug was for the kernel side of things, and the only change required was to add a field in the super block for the UUID. At a later date, the UUID was exported via sysfs and added to all uevent messages generated by the fs, but otherwise it is unused in the kernel as its mostly a userspace issue.
