Yeah, you missed that ... for some reason the kernel ext4 driver is
missing flags that are in e2fsprogs.  (huh??)

I would say you could probably just take over the flag because the 2010s
called and they don't want next3 back.  I guess that leaves 0x02000000
as the sole unclaimed bit, but this seriously needs some cleaning.
