Description Eric Sandeen 2008-04-28 16:52:24 EDT
We're starting to get some testing of ext4 on RHEL5, and we may get it to a tech
preview status by RHEL5.3 - to support this, a few system utilities could use
updates for ext4.

Adding ext4/ext4dev magic to "file" would be helpful.

This was already done for F9 in bug #430927

The backport from F-9 is easy.
