As rm doesn't delete the '/', it is a rm bug.
The patch sent with this mail corrects this bug [for me].
In fact, there was in rm.c this function :
void strip_trailing_slashes ();

As it didn't do anything, the '/' was not deleted. I just implemented
this function.

But maybe some work could be done in etx2fs.
In "ext2fs/dir.c", the function "diskfs_lookup_hard" should understand a
search for "/" and return a good descriptor, so that
"diskfs_dirremove_hard" can happily remove it.
