Subject: /fs/ext4/ext4.h add a comment to ext4_dir_entry_2


Could a comment be added to clarify 'file_type' ?

struct ext4_dir_entry_2 {
     __le32    inode;            /* Inode number */
     __le16    rec_len;        /* Directory entry length */
     __u8    name_len;        /* Name length */
     __u8    file_type;
     char    name[EXT4_NAME_LEN];    /* File name */

This what I am proposing to add:

     __u8    file_type;        /* See directory file type macros below */

Thank you
