I'll take this opportunity to point out that AFAIK we are still unable
to mount file systems made with newer e2fsprogs releases due to the
inode size change.  This is documented in kern/124621 and has been
discussed on stable@ in the past[1].  As new filesystems are made we
will continue to get hit by this bug more and more.

Thanks for your work on maintaining this port.
