I'm not going to claim to be an ext3 expert, but I can speak from personal
experience. And, in my personal experience, ext3 support does _not_ need
to be compiled into the kernel for the root partition. I use a stock
debian kernel image (kernel-image-2.4.16-586):
:~$ uname -a
Linux jamin-mini 2.4.16-586 #1 Wed Nov 28 08:21:15 EST 2001 i586 unknown
:~$ cat /etc/mtab
/dev/hda6 / ext3 rw,errors=remount-ro 0 0
:~$ /sbin/lsmod | grep ext3
ext3 55296 5 (autoclean)
jbd 34440 5 (autoclean) [ext3]
I have no difficulty booting my system. Almost all of my systems are
running stock debian kernel images and using the ext3 filesystem for all
data partitions with no problems.
