    Yet another case of Linux pro-active bug-fixing. I have already sent
    a patch for this to Linus and Alan. It seems I CC'd ext2-devel, but
    not linux-kernel.

    Here is the patch again. It was likely caused by Al Viro's major
    overhaul of the ext2 directory code, to move it into the page cache.

    Cheers, Andreas
