I've put an updated set of ext2/3 patches here:


There is a broken out set of patches available at:


It's based on a set of patches which Stephen sent out in March,
updated with a few bug fixes and with the patches that have been
merged into 2.4.21-rc8 removed.

Well, I've been using these patches on a daily basis on my laptop
without any problems.  I'd be interested in hearing from people who
are using these patches under heavy load on an NFS server, however.

If we can get some successful reports from folks who are using it
under heavy NFS load, then I'd feel comfortable asking Marcello to
include these patches into the 2.4 tree.
