Subject[18/35] ext3: skip orphan cleanup on rocompat fs
2.6.33-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Amir Goldstein <>

commit ce654b37f87980d95f339080e4c3bdb2370bdf22 upstream.

Orphan cleanup is currently executed even if the file system has some
number of unknown ROCOMPAT features, which deletes inodes and frees
blocks, which could be very bad for some RO_COMPAT features.

This patch skips the orphan cleanup if it contains readonly compatible
features not known by this ext3 implementation, which would prevent
the fs from being mounted (or remounted) readwrite.
