Or use mkfs.ext2 -O none ... to disable all of the new features.

       -O feature[,...]
              Create the filesystem with the listed set  of  fea-
              tures (filesystem options).  The following features
              are  supported:  sparse_super,  which   cause   the
              filesystem to use sparse superblocks, and filetype,
              which will cause the filesystem to store file  type
              information in directory entries.   Currently, both
              features are turned on by default unless mke2fs  is
              run on a system with a pre-2.2 Linux kernel.  Warn-
              ing: Pre-2.2 Linux kernels do not properly  support
              the  filesystems  that use either of these two fea-
              tures.   Filesystems that may need  to  mounted  on
              pre-2.2  kernels  should  be  created  with -O none
              which will disable both of these features, even  if
              mke2fs  is  run on a system which can support these
