Now I think i_version was moved from ext2_fs_i.h (struct ext2_inode_info) to
fs.h (struct inode). stegfs still has i_version in it's own stegfs_inode_info.
I guess to cleanly move the stegfs from 2.2.14 to 2.2.18 it would be good to
not have a own stegfs i_version. Are there any mean, hidden, desasterous
implications waiting if I move it?
