Why do you need ext2_fs.h?   We're planning on removing ext2_fs.h as an
exported header file very shortly (perhaps as soon as v3.4; it's already in Al
Viro's VFS git tree).

Ext 2/3/4 userspace programs ***really*** should be using libext2fs, and if for
some reason they don't want to do that, they can use the ext2_fs.h header file
that is shipped with e2fsprogs and libext2fs.

Programs written as much as 8 years ago and which used libext2fs generally were
able to support ext4 file systems have generally been able to support ext4;
that's one of the major reasons why I strongly suggest the use of that library,
instead of trying to use kernel header files to roll your own thing....
