regression in fs/ext2.c

The following commit:

2008-05-20  Bean  <address@hidden>

introduced a regression in fs/ext2.c.  The effect is that when attempting
to access an ext2 filesystem from grub-emu (and AFAICT only from grub-emu),
it will spend a lot of time (a minute or so) in a loop that calls lseek()
repeatedly (with increasingly higher offsets).

I'm sorry, I spent a while looking into this, but haven't been able to
find the source of the problem.
