My apologies, when I started reading the patch I was thinking it
replaced all of the printk's in ext3_fill_super(), which it in fact
does not.

OK, that's in line with what I was suggesting.  Carry on :-).

Yes, it is definitely desirable to have patches for all of them, but
always in separate emails.  If you feel the patches are ready to go,
then go ahead and send all 3 at once.  I just thought it might save
some work and list traffic if we agree on one of the patches and then
produce the other two to match.
