Yes indeed.

Although with -o commit=1 it doesn't mount due to extra checks when commit is not
equal to it's default value where it also checks if the fs has journal or not.

[19084.421413] EXT4-fs (loop2): mounting ext2 file system using the ext4 subsystem
[19084.422679] EXT4-fs (loop2): can't mount with commit=1, fs mounted w/o journal


But when mounted with -o commit=5, ext2 gets mounted w/o this patch ;)

[19146.337981] EXT4-fs (loop2): mounting ext2 file system using the ext4 subsystem
[19146.345082] EXT4-fs (loop2): mounted filesystem without journal. Quota mode: none.
