    ext4: promote ext4 over ext2 in the default probe order · 9172796b
    Darrick J. Wong authored
    Prevent clean ext3 filesystems from mounting by default with the ext2
    driver (with no journal!) by putting ext4 ahead of ext2 in the default
    probe order.  This will have the effect of mounting ext2 filesystems
    with ext4.ko by default, which is a safer failure than hoping the user
    notices that their journalled ext3 is now running without a journal!
    Users who require ext2.ko for ext2 can either disable ext4.ko or
    explicitly request ext2 via "mount -t ext2" or "rootfstype=ext2".
