Hi Kalpak, 

	In the future it would be really helpful if you split up your
patches so that each different thing is done in separate patches.

	Also, note there is a recent bug fix in this area, and the
byte-swapping extended attributes.  The issues involved here are
subtle; please see the discussion here:

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=232663

So before your patches go in, we need to do a careful audit to make
sure they don't interact properly with this patch which is already in
e2fsprogs mainline.

Correct byteswapping for fast symlinks with xattrs

Fix a problem byte-swapping fast symlinks inodes that contain extended
