Hmm - wondering when this has changed, as in the time it's been developed I
think it has worked - thought it's been some experimental kernel support.
It seems to be even mentioned in many man pages around that ext2 should work
online, but my current 3.0 refuses to do it - so it's probably ok to disable
it for ext2.  (So currently user needs to add  '-e' option to proceed).
