 OFW's ext2/3/4 filesystem code assumes that EXT2_FEATURE_INCOMPAT_FILETYPE
 is set in the superblock, regardless of whether or not it actually is set.
 If the filesystem has been created without that feature, OFW will fail to
 resolve pathnames.

 The fix is to change $find-name in dir.fth so that, if the feature is not
 set, instead of setting wf-type from dirent-type@, set it by decode the
 file type from the inode flags.
