I have had problems writing to Linux ext2fs partitions from NetBSD, have not really proven that using -O 0 would solve the problem.

I also don't know if there is anything peculiar with "git" for writing to a Linux ext2fs from NetBSD, as opposed to extracting a .tgx, .tbz or .txz.

Maybe I need to create an ext2fs with -O 0 and another with -O 1 and try with a small git repository, nothing big like Gentoo portage or Void-Linux void packages.  Then I could experiment with only the root partition andd ext2fs partition in question mounted.  I could also try extracting a tarball.
