This was due to the bug where we weren't dealing with the i_extra_size
correctly, right?  ext2fs_swap_inode_full *should* be swapping the
extra fields and copying it into the inode.  If not, that's should be
the real bug, and adding the memset(inode, 0, bufset) doesn't seem to
be useful.

Am I missing something?
