Without the patch, accessing an ext2/ext3 filesystem causes some sort of
stack corruption that can have various symptoms (not always the same
error message). As noted in the Trac entry (#799) the root cause of this
is still unknown.
With the patch I am able to execute 'ext2ls' and 'ext2load' reliably,
and I have been running with an ext3 SD-card rootfs (including kernel)
on my GTA01 for several months. I don't have access to a GTA02 so I
can't test it there.
