This is missing an le16_to_cpu(sbi->s_es->s_desc_size) conversion.  I missed
it in my sparse checking because it was commented out.  Also, s_desc_size is
only valid in conjunction with INCOMPAT_64BIT I think, so that should be
checked also.

This is the wrong feature number.  It should be 0x0010 as in the original
patch, and as reserved in the upstream e2fsprogs.  The confusion is because
you added this to the "FEATURE_COMPAT" section instead of the
FEATURE_RO_COMPAT section of the headers.

I've asked Girish to send an incremental patch.

Cheers, Andreas
