Comment(by wmb at firmworks.com):

 svn 2815 corrects a problem with group descriptor checksum management for
 ext4.  The impact of that problem is filesystem corruption (correctable by
 fsck) when you delete a file on an ext4 filesystem with OFW.

 Another problem has cropped up.  If the journal is dirty (from Linux), OFW
 fails to recover it correctly.
