As far as I know, the i_bitmaps test is passing on on sparc64 and
ppc64.  Search for i_bitmaps in:

https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=e2fsprogs&arch=sparc64&ver=1.45.5-2&stamp=1578527938&raw=0
   and
https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=e2fsprogs&arch=ppc64&ver=1.45.5-2&stamp=1578526270&raw=0

The bug in c9a8c53b was caused by SPARSE_SUPER being passed to
ext2fs_open().  But that doesn't happen in misc/e2image.

I can see optimizing ext2fs_flush() to skip byte-swapping the group
descriptors if the SUPER_ONLY flag is enabled.  And I can see
ext2fs_image_super_write() checking to see if the SUPER_ONLY flag is
set, and returning an error in that case.

But I don't think any of the current e2fsprogs are crashing at the
moment.  Am I missing something?
