Subject: [PATCH resend] ext4: allow defrag (EXT4_IOC_MOVE_EXT) in 32bit compat mode

Ted, can you consider this patch for ext4?

From: Christian Borntraeger <>

I have an x86_64 kernel with i386 userspace. e4defrag fails on the
EXT4_IOC_MOVE_EXT ioctl because it is not wired up for the compat
case. It seems that 
struct move_extent is compat save, only types with fixed widths are used.
        __u32 reserved;         /* should be zero */
        __u32 donor_fd;         /* donor file descriptor */
        __u64 orig_start;       /* logical start offset in block for orig */
        __u64 donor_start;      /* logical start offset in block for donor */
        __u64 len;              /* block length to be moved */
        __u64 moved_len;        /* moved block length */
