    fs: Remove ext3 filesystem driver · c290ea01
    Jan Kara authored
    The functionality of ext3 is fully supported by ext4 driver. Major
    distributions (SUSE, RedHat) already use ext4 driver to handle ext3
    filesystems for quite some time. There is some ugliness in mm resulting
    from jbd cleaning buffers in a dirty page without cleaning page dirty
    bit and also support for buffer bouncing in the block layer when stable
    pages are required is there only because of jbd. So let's remove the
    ext3 driver. This saves us some 28k lines of duplicated code.
