The ext4 filesystem also supports delayed 14 allocation, persistent preallocation, high resolution time stamps, 15 and a number of other features to improve performance and speed 16 up fsck time. For more information, please see the web pages at 17 http://ext4.wiki.kernel.org. 18 19 The ext4 filesystem will support mounting an ext3 20 filesystem; while there will be some performance gains from 21 the delayed allocation and inode table readahead, the best 22 performance gains will require enabling ext4 features in the 23 filesystem, or formatting a new filesystem as an ext4 24 filesystem initially. 25 26 To compile this file system support as a module, choose M here. The 27 module will be called ext4. 28 29 If unsure, say N. 30 31 config EXT4_USE_FOR_EXT23 32 bool "Use ext4 for ext2/ext3 file systems" 33 depends on EXT4_FS 34 depends on EXT3_FS=n || EXT2_FS=n 35 default y 36 help 37 Allow the ext4 file system driver code to be used for ext2 or 38 ext3 file system mounts.
