This is an ext2 message when sb->s_blocksize != bh->b_size, even though
ext2 _should_ set the block size correctly if we get to this point (it
will call set_blocksize(sb->s_blocksize)).

Now I see what the problem might be, it is in ext2.  Give it a try and
let me know how it goes.

Cheers, Andreas
