    This isn't technically a regression, since the warning is simply
    complaining about something that apparently ext4 has been doing for a
    long time, which is that it allocates some very large order data
    buffers. So the change referenced simply printed a warning message
    that complained about the fact.

    The actual problem will be fixed in 2.6.32, as we no longer allocate
    the big data buffers at mount time.
