EXT3: tail packing status / a few questions



Dr. Tweedie, et al.:

	I have decided to move to EXT3 from ReiserFS if I can get tail
packing for EXT3. Last I had asked about it, someone had written some
sort of patch but it was not official (I think), and was questionable if
it had worked or not. Can someone tell me the status in the instant? If
I installed 2.4.18 or a later kernel, would tail packing be part of
EXT3? How would I turn it on or off?

	I also have a couple of other questions:

	a) How can I revert back to EXT2 from EXT3, since Partition
Magic does not know how to resize an EXT3 partition?

	b) Someone had posted a command to adjust the percentage of
"reserve" space that EXT3 sets aside, can someone repost that again?
