I try to track upstream as closely as I can; F8 had quite a lot of
patches for a while, and I got it whittled down to just a couple.  I
think I'm back up to 7 though :)

Patch1: e2fsprogs-1.39-blkid-devmapper.patch
Patch2: e2fsprogs-1.38-etcblkid.patch
Patch3: e2fsprogs-1.39-mkinstalldirs.patch
Patch4: e2fsprogs-1.40.4-uuidd-tidy.patch
Patch5: e2fsprogs-1.40.4-sb_feature_check_ignore.patch
Patch6: e2fsprogs-1.40.4-blkid-ext4dev.patch
Patch7: e2fsprogs-1.40.4-no-static-e2fsck.patch


# look at device mapper devices -
# autoconf-foo to find ldevmapper in /lib
%patch1 -p1 -b .dm
# put in /etc/blkid/ - fedora-ism I think
%patch2 -p1 -b .etcblkid
# Fix for newer autoconf (#220715) - only 'cause we must
# re-run autoconf due to patch 1 IIRC
%patch3 -p1 -b .mkinstalldirs
# uuidd manpage tidyup <--- sent upstream already
%patch4 -p1 -b .uuidd-tidy
# ignore some flag differences on primary/backup sb feature checks
# sent (bad... ) patch upstream, will resend
# ignores flags set on the fly by the kernel
%patch5 -p1 -b .featurecheck
# teach blkid about ext4dev, for now
%patch6 -p1 -b .ext4-blkid
# completely clobber e2fsck.static build,
# fedora is missing some .a's, and don't need it
%patch7 -p1 -b .e2fsck-static
