There were several problems with it:
- Apparently the format isn't completely stable. A discussion dated of
December 2013 proposes to change format in order to squeeze in a little
bit more data.
- Patch would crash on ARM due to misaligned access
- There are memory leaks.
For 2nd and 3rd I've uploaded fixes to andrey/ext4_inline_data but then
because lack of support in version packaged by Debian sid I couldn't
test it.
