I took a quick look at this patch and saw one obvious thing:


I think the first hunk should use the same code as the second hunk -
the first bit is always incrementing by the size of struct
ext2_group_desc, when it needs to increment by the size of struct
ext4_group_desc on 64-bit file systems.  ext2fs_group_desc() does the
right thing.

Also, there's a teensy bit of whitespace damage in the second hunk in
csum.c.

Looks like there's a lot of low-hanging fruit just compiling for
big-endian.
