Actually, RHEL-4 (based off 2.6.9) has needed one htree-related fix:


which affects NFS lookup-parent only, so Lustre probably wouldn't need

That was the last one I'm aware of; it has been robust other than that,
and the RHEL and Fedora installers have been doing tune2fs -O dir_index
to all filesystems by default since RHEL-4 / FC-2 (ie. for over 18
months,) so it's definitely well tested here.
