this one in the lkml archives)

Older kernels on 64-bit machines would incorrectly encode pre-1970
ext4 dates as post-2311 dates.  Detect and correct this (assuming the
current date is before 2242).

Wouldn't 2242 be 0x200000000ULL, i.e. 2 * (1ULL << 32)?

Needs parentheses (

With e.g. 2039 atime and 1968 mtime, shouldn't only i_mtime_extra be altered?
