Description Eric Sandeen 2009-10-08 14:27:36 EDT
There have been 200+ ext4 & jbd commits upstream since the RHEL5.4 ext4 codebase; several are for data integrity or system crash/dedlock bugs that should probably be addressed for RHEL5.5.  This will likely be a more targeted pull-back of a few choice commits rather than a wholesale backport of 2.6.32 ext4 code.
