    The ext2 indexing patch is apparently stable but it's still pre-alpha
    until the hash function is finalized. I could see using it to run
    performance tests of ext2+indexing against the alternatives, but only
    if you are prepared to rerun mke2fs later. Then there is the matter of
    making fsck index-aware. As it stands now, if fsck finds an index it
    will remove it.

    But by all means please test the patch:

    It would be great to see a table of ReiserFS/XFS/Ext2+index performance
    results. Well, to make it really fair it should be Ext3+index so I'd
    better add 'backport the patch to 2.2' or 'bug Stephen and friends to
    hurry up' to my to-do list.
