Hmm?  Ext3 was first written for 2.2, and then ported to 2.4.  A lot
of the more advanced code (performance improvements, etc) is only in
2.4, but the 2.2 ext3 is still available.

I will probably not be back-porting any of the 2.4 improvements other
than pure bug-fixes, because the 2.4 code has changed sufficiently
from 2.2 to make that a nightmare I don't really have the time for.

Cheers,
 Stephen
