Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/2] Make ext3 use bit operations to manipulate i_flags

Could you please use "20" (0x100000) for this flag, as there were patches to
use 18 (0x40000) for EXT4_HUGE_FILE_FL, and 19 (0x80000) is definitely
reserved for EXT4_EXTENTS_FL.

I'd suggest emailing Ted to reserve a flag for this, and also adding the
other reserved flags to ext2 and ext3 so there is no risk of conflicts.

Similarly, there is already
#define EXT2_FEATURE_COMPAT_LAZY_BG             0x0040

in e2fsprogs so you need to use 0x0080 for your feature.  Please update
all of the ext*_fs.h files to have the most recent flags from e2fsprogs
so that we can avoid such dangers in the future.

Cheers, Andreas
