Not too sure about that, but ISTR that SysVr4 (and possibly SysVr3.2)
used to store the last mount point for the filesystem in the
superblock. There is room for this in the ext2fs superblock.....
__u32 s_reserved[230]; /* Padding to the end of the block */
tho whether this use of the space is worth it is debatable.
