    Hmm.  Does the machine crash if you manually mount an ext2fs partition
    after booting is complete, without ext2fs support compiled in or a
    module loaded?

    It might not be too difficult to add module loader support to 'mount'
    if it encounters a filesystem type that the kernel does not know about.
    We need to fix the crash first.
