I had quite a lot of hassles after converting my ext2 partition to
ext3. Even a uboot update didn't help while Qi worked out of the box
with ext3. Seems as if uboot doesn't really support ext3.

BTW: Is there a possibility to revert an ext3 partition to ext2?
I wonder about the impact of a single journal inode on a (micro) SD
card which is said to have no builtin wear-leveling.
