Subject: [PATCH, RFC] ext4: Remove i_ext_generation from ext4_inode_info structure


ext4_inode_info.i_ext_generation isn't used by anything.  Was there an
intent to use it for something in the future?

commit 51972792db1397cddd97e1ab9c8d2604453f5b4c

    ext4: Remove i_ext_generation from ext4_inode_info structure
    
    The i_ext_generation was incremented, but never used.  Remove it to
    slim down the ext4_inode_info structure.
