Subject: Re: [PATCH 1/5] libext2fs: Move a modulo operation out of a hot loop.

Subject: [PATCH] libext2fs: Move a modulo operation out of a hot loop.

Filesystem shrinking in particular is a heavy user of this loop in
ext2fs_new_inode(). This change makes resize2fs use 24% less CPU time
for shrinking a 100G filesystem.
