In hindsight, it would have been better (IMHO) if the EXT4_ERR_* values mapped
to the standard x86_64 errors in errno.h, since that is what most admins/users
are familiar with (e.g. 5 = EIO, 12 = ENOMEM, 28 = ENOSPC, 30 = EROFS).  That
would avoid the need to look up the EXT4_ERR_* values, since it doesn't look
like dumpe2fs even handles these fields yet.

I guess I never noticed the original patch when it was submitted, so water under
the bridge, I guess...
