Hmm, this worked for e2fsprogs 1.22, e2fsprogs 1.23 was released
8-15-01 according to Sourceforge.

I applied your fix, and yes it now works for 1.23:

[root@localhost linux]# sh scripts/ver_linux
[irrelevant stuff snipped]
modutils 2.4.3
e2fsprogs 1.23
reiserfsprogs 3.x.0i

Ok, so far so good. Now checking ver_linux shipped with 2.4.9-ac5
[root@localhost linux]# sh scripts/ver_linux.ac5
[irrelevant stuff snipped]
modutils 2.4.3
e2fsprogs tune2fs
reiserfsprogs 3.x.0i

Yep, it's broken for e2fsprogs 1.23 all right.

Now, I installed e2fsprogs 1.22, and your new version breaks:

[root@localhost linux]# sh scripts/ver_linux <--- with your patch
[irrelevant stuff snipped]
modutils 2.4.3
e2fsprogs tune2fs
reiserfsprogs 3.x.0i

and the old version (old as in 2.4.9-ac5) works for e2fsprogs 1.22
[root@localhost linux]# sh scripts/ver_linux.ac5
[irrelevant stuff snipped]
modutils 2.4.3
e2fsprogs 1.22
reiserfsprogs 3.x.0i

So, this patch breaks the ver_linux script for 1.22, and 1.21 (I checked
this too). If someone wants to fix this right, please jump in.
