The original versions of these patches were created on much older
versions of e2fsprogs (1.41 or earlier), so it is entirely possible
that some of them are now outdated, which is why I haven't been
sending them upstream myself.  They definitely need to be reviewed
more closely to see if they are still relevant to newer e2fsprogs.

Cheers, Andreas
