Subject: fast_commit option not recognized/supported by e2fsck?

Seems like I can't use the new fast_commit option.

$ apt-get install gcc make bison -y && wget
tar -xvf e2fsprogs-1.46.4.tar.gz && cd e2fsprogs-1.46.4 && ./configure
&& make -j2 && sudo make install
$ sudo tune2fs -O fast_commit /dev/nvme0n1p2
# and verified flags with
$ sudo tune2fs -l /dev/nvme0n1p2 | grep fast_commit
Filesystem features:      has_journal ext_attr resize_inode dir_index
fast_commit filetype needs_recovery extent 64bit flex_bg sparse_super
large_file huge_file dir_nlink extra_isize metadata_csum
$ e2fsck -V
e2fsck 1.46.4 (18-Aug-2021)
Using EXT2FS Library version 1.46.4, 18-Aug-2021
$ uname -a

Now I did a reboot and the system hangs. It shows the following error
message. Any thoughts on what's going wrong here? thanks!

Begin: Will now check root file system ... fsck from util-linux 2.34

/dev/nvme0n1p2 has unsupported feature(s): fast_commit
e2fsck: Get a newer version of e2fsck!

/dev/nvme0n1p2: ********** WARNING: Filesystem still has errors **********

fsck exited with status code 12
Failure: File system check of the root filesystem failed
The root filesystem on /dev/nvme0n1p2 requires a manual fsck
