One stupid question:

Is ext4 "production-ready"? I know it was declared stable in 2.6.28
but I still see more ext4 patches than ext3 in the kernel. Maybe it's
just because ext4 is newer? Is ext4 ready to fully replace ext3
without any data losses? What about mission-critical machines or
should we wait untill 2.6.31 just to be sure?
