Aha. And there was that UFS_LINK_MAX thing. Fixed. OK, new version is on
the same site, URL being ftp://ftp.math.psu.edu/pub/viro/ext2-patch-8.gz

Changes: got rid of the remnants of UFS ancestry (EXT2 limits are
used; not that it mattered much, but...), fixed the conversion in
ext2_empty_dir() (cpu_to_le32() instead of le32_to_cpu()).
Cheers,
Al
