On Aug. 22 2010 Zheng Liu posted a patch to add read-only
support for ext4 extents in our ext2fs driver that was part
of his GSoC.
The ext2fs module has received many enhancements, mainly

I updated the patch just cleaning up some things that are
not strictly necessary and adapting it to the underlying
The patch should apply cleanly in both 10-current and 9-stable.
No review of this patch has been done, beyond compiling on
amd64, and I have no idea if it works at all.
AFAICT, there was no feedback on the original patch so I am
actually wondering if this feature is desired at all. I will be
glad to keep it around for a while and eventually update it
but committing it is not yet in the horizon until we see
more interest and at least some testing.
