    Two problems were found when testing largeblock on ext3. Patches to
    follow.

    Good news is, with your changes, plus all these extN changes, I am able
    to run ext2/3/4 with 64k block size, tested on x86 and ppc64 with 4k
    page size. fsx test runs fine for an hour on ext3 with 16k blocksize on
    x86:-)
