  Description     : ext3fs support for Linux 2.4.9 and speedup patches

The latest patch for kernel 2.4.10pre4 is used as the base source. It
needs a slight modificaton to apply cleanly on 2.4.9.
This package will also contain experimental patches from Theodory Tso
that make sequent 'readdir' faster, resulting in better performance of
ls,find,... on large directories.

If someone has made bad experiences with them, please let me know and I
will remove this patches.
