Ahh, great work Peter!!

I had a really quick look at your patches, especially the ext2fs
patch. I have a little (perhaps stupid) question about this patch. I
usually use htons ntos, etc. for handling endianess. Was there a
reason not to use these functions? I'm really happy to see those
improvements for endianess :). I still wonder if other parts of the
Hurd won't have these problems...

Could you please write ChangeLog entries. I know this is boring work,
but that makes the code easier to read and it is a requirement for
submition AFAIK.
