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.
