A similiar patch has already been applied to -current but it had to be
reverted as it didn't work with e2fsprogs 1.40.8:
extra/grub/grub-0.97-i486-5.tgz: Recompiled without the inode patch since
e2fsprogs-1.40.8 broke the GRUB we patched to work with e2fsprogs-1.40.6.
Although GRUB 2 is in an alpha state, it is working quite well and
stabilizing the features is planned in November, 2008. As I am
periodically forgetting to re-run lilo after installing a new kernel, I
would like to see an actively maintained alternative.
