This code should just be removed entirely.  It is dangerous to use, and
by including it in e2fsprogs it lends a false sense of credibility to
the code.  Hopefully most of the functionality here has been incorporated
into debugfs?

Did you run the "make check" tests?  We've found these invaluable for
catching regressions.  Ideally there would also be some test cases
for this support using "lazy_bg", a script to generate the filesystem,
and conditional upon being able to create sparse files that big.
