I can't tell you if it breaks any of the other filesystems, but I can
confirm that this appears to have fixed the seemingly random filesystem
corruption I've been seeing ever since upgrading to 2.0_BETA.

If you commit this patch (or already have done so), please also request
a pullup-request to the 2.0 branch.  Without this patch, 2.0_BETA is
close to useless on >1TB filesystem machines.

Thanks a lot!
