with resize_inode feature DISABLED the only
warning/message I obtain when doing "fsck.ext3 -f"
after the resize is:

Backing up journal inode block information

with resize_inode feature ENABLED when extending to
size > 1000*(originalSize) the errors I obtain are:

Resize_inode not enabled, but resize inode is non-zero
Block bitmap differences: -57 Fix<y>

Free blocks count wrong for group #0 (6146,
counted=6147) Fix<y>

Free blocks count wrong (2194393, counted=2194394)

After answering yes to all requests I can mount and
use the partition, but the resize_inode feature
The example was on a test partition of 2M extended to
2.1G but I made other tests with greater size (50M ->
110G for example) with the same result.
