Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 458718
FEAT: RHEL 5.3 ext4 tech preview
Last modified: 2009-01-20 15:10:47 EST
I realized that there is no individual bug for the ext4 code *itself* for ext4 in RHEL5.3 as tech preview; we have bugs for needed userspace changes and various VFS bits, but no actual bug for the code itself.
For tidiness, here is that bug.
The current plan is to provide a backported ext4 codebase from 2.6.26; this is missing delalloc but delalloc is still maturing, and will be a substantially tricky backport, so it's unlikely that we'll include it in this release (it is upstream in 2.6.27).
