  Sorry, for the delayed answer but I had some urgent bugs to fix...
Why did you drom ext3-support-large-blocksize-up-to-pagesize.patch? As far
as I understand your previous email (and also as I've checked against
2.6.23-rc8-mm2), the patch fixing rec_len overflow clashes only for ext2...
  I'll send you an updated patch for ext2 in a moment.
