Of course this assumes the ext2 in the kernel understands what the new
features mean.  If it doesn't, you have to go in and remove them with
debugfs before you reboot.  When you reboot, fsck complains about the
flag not being set while a journal is present, so it removes the file.

The next time you run fsck, it notices that the inode is still there,
and forces a full check.  Is that the way it's supposed to work, or is
the journal's inode supposed to be removed when the journal is?

Except for that case, it's worked with no problems for me as well.
