local changes:
- remove libcom_err patch, it's now included upstream

upstream changes:
E2fsprogs 1.41.11 (March 14, 2010)

E2fsck will no longer give a fatal error and abort if the physical
device has been resized beyond 2**32 blocks. (Addresses Launchpad Bug:
#521648)

Debugfs has a bug fixed so that "logdump -b " now properly shows the
allocation status of the block . (Addresses Debian Bug: #564084)

E2fsck now prints a much more emphatic and hopefully scary message
when a file system is detected as mounted while doing a read/write
check of the filesystem. Hopefully this will dissuade users from
thinking, "surely that message doesn't apply to *me*" :-(

E2fsck -n will now always open the file system read-only. We now
disallow certain combination of options which previously were manual
exceptions; this is bad because it causes users to think they are
smarter than they really are. So "-n -c", "-n -l", "-n -L", and "-n
-D" are no longer supported. (Addresses Launchpad Bug: #537483)

In e2fsprogs 1.41.10, mke2fs would ask for confirmation to proceed if
it detected a badly aligned partition. Unfortunately, this broke some
distribution installation scripts, so it now just prints the warning
message and proceeds. (Addresses Red Hat Bug: #569021. Addresses
Launchpad Bug: #530071)

Mke2fs would take a long time to create very large journal files for
ext4. This was caused by a bug in ext2fs_block_iterate2(), which is
now fixed.

E2fsck now understands the EOFBLOCKS_FL flag which will be used in
2.6.34 kernels to make e2fsck not complain about blocks deliberately
fallocated() beyond an inode's i_size.

E2fsprogs 1.41.10 introduced a regression (in commit b71e018) where
e2fsck -fD can corrupt non-indexed directories when are exists one or
more file names which alphabetically sort before ".". This can happen
with ext2 filesystems or for small directories (take less than a lock)
which contain filenames that begin with a space or some other
punctuation mark. (Addresses Debian Bug: #573923, Addresses Launchpad
Bug: #525114)
Programmer's Notes

Add new test, f_rehash_dir, which checks to make sure e2fsck -D works correctly.

The libcom_err function now has support for Heimdal's com_right_r
function(). (Addresses Sourceforge Bug: #2963865, Addresses Debian
Bug: #558910)
