    thx. A more recent submission from Arjan would be:

    Resolution was that Tytso indicated it went into some sort of ext4
    patch queue:

    | I've ported the patch to the ext4 filesystem, and dropped it into
    | the unstable portion of the ext4 patch queue.
    | ext4: akpm's locking hack to fix locking delays

    but 6 months down the line and i can find no trace of this upstream


    The thing is ... this is a _bad_ ext3 design bug affecting ext3
    users in the last decade or so of ext3 existence. Why is this issue
    not handled with the utmost high priority and why wasnt it fixed 5
    years ago already? :-)

    It does not matter whether we have extents or htrees when there are
    _trivially reproducible_ basic usability problems with ext3.
