I suspect Theodore Tso (a bit of a god in the EXT[234] filesystem world, if you ask me) has answered most of your concerns: http://www.linux-archive.org/ext3-us...xt3_inode.html

No problem. I just wanted to make sure anyone who comes across this later also has the benefit of the conversation on the mailing list.
