Trying a bit of intellectual honesty would help big way.

Realizing that ext2 patches should be sent to ext2 maintainers would help
even more.

You've spent _months_ ignoring the idea above. You've tried many different
techniques for what, exactly? To push that stuff to a guy who is not, was not
and had never been maintainer of the code in question? Wow.

And yes, it had been told to you from the very beginning. tytso, sct and akpm
are the right guys for such stuff. It's their code, they do maintain it
and I think in all cases I've sent ext2 patches it was only after ACK from
ext2 folks.

If it took you a fscking year to realize that, despite having it explained to
you in details... Don't you feel yourself an idiot?
