    ext4: Initialize the new group descriptor when resizing the filesystem
    Make sure all of the fields of the group descriptor are properly
    initialized.  Previously, we allowed bg_flags field to be contain
    random garbage, which could trigger non-deterministic behavior,
    including a kernel OOPS.

The patch was merged with mainline shortly after 2.6.29-rc3.
