in the code maturity level options select:

Prompt for development and/or incomplete code/drivers

much of what's different are drivers that either haven't yet been accepted
into the tree or won't be accepted for various reasons...

you can add ext3 by either grabbing the andrew morton et al patch from...

http://www.uow.edu.au/~andrewm/linux/ext3/

significant amount of code will migrate into that.
