SubjectRe: BUG: using rootfstype=ext4 causes oops

I've tested this with a local GFS2 mount (which uses barriers too) and
the same bug occurs. Apologies for making it seem like an ext4 bug. I'm
currently waiting for a kernel to build with Bartlomiej's patch so we'll
see how that goes.

Thanks Ted.

Further up in that file in the last paragraph of the 'Quick usage
instructions' it says:

'-o barriers=[0|1]' mount option for both ext3 and ext4 filesystems

(I searched the file for barrier and it was the first chunk of text
which matched.)
