In that case we fudamentally disagree what "reasonable" means.

Sending a revert for a 2 year old commit based on a BUG in consumer of
that subsystem based on a really old kernel without any explanation
of why that revert is even directly related to the problem and not just
a casuality is what I would define as completely unreasable.

Please send a proper bug report to the ext4 maintainer first, and we
can work from there.
