Bug#68659: root disk filesystem shouldn't use new ext2 extensions

Package: boot-floppies
Version: 2.2.17

The filesystem image on the root disk (root.bin) shouldn't
use ext2 extensions that are incompatible with 2.0.x kernels.

The current image uses those extensions, making it impossible to
modify the filesystem with a slink system.

(I'm trying to see some error message that are quickly erased 
by an installation dialog, but I can't even look at the filesystem 
to see if I can modify the script to preserve the messages.)
