A small ext3 update.  It fixes a few hard-to-hit but potentially
serious problems. The patch is against 2.4.18-pre3, and is also
applicable to 2.4.17.

0.9.17 12 Jan 2002

- Cleanup from Manfred Spraul which provides better randomisation of inode
generation numbers.

- A locking fix which prevents possible panics when an application is
using ioctl(FIBMAP) against a loaded filesystem.

- Buffer locking fix for journal descriptor buffers - fixes the
"end_request: buffer-list destroyed" crash which can occur under
heavy VM load.

- Fix a buffer locking problem which could cause corruption if a process
is reading from the underlying block device while journal recovery is
in progress.
