That's fine, but it's also a gratuitous change to previously working userspace.
 It sounds like the right thing would be to leave <linux/ext2_fs.h> in place
exporting only those constants as a backwards compatibility measure.

I can update Syslinux, but it isn't just about Syslinux; in general it's rude
to break userspace unnecessarily :-/
