As you might know 2.4.20 has a filesystem corruption bug with ext3 fs.
Unforunately the patch changes the semantic of sync_supers by adding a
parameter "wait".
I've not enough knowledge of how the VFS works to dear to update the
patch ... did anyone already do this?

BTW: the ext3 patches are available from
