+.br
+This ext4 feature provides file system-level character encoding support
+for files and directories name.  This feature is name-preserving on the
+disk, but it allows applications to lookup for a file in the file system
+using any encoding equivalent version of the file name.

+This feature is required to perform in-kernel case-insensitive file
+name lookups.
