Description Eric Sandeen 2008-08-11 16:25:05 EDT
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).
