Subject: Re: [PATCH 2/2] ext2: Avoid rec_len overflow with 64KB block size

Old ext2 only supports up to 4k


#define EXT2_MIN_BLOCK_SIZE             1024
#define EXT2_MAX_BLOCK_SIZE             4096
#define EXT2_MIN_BLOCK_LOG_SIZE           10

Should fail to mount the volume since the block size is too large.
