RFE: add ext4/ext4dev magic to file utility in RHEL5
Last modified: 2009-01-20 17:02:47 EST
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.
