    Isn't there code that is shared across ext2/3/4? If yes, is that counted in?

    IIRC, the common code is duplicated because people were wary of doing any kind of experimental development in the ext3 tree at that point. There is (or was last time I looked) a kernel config option to the effect of "use ext4 driver for ext2/3 filesystems", which doesn't make much sense unless the ext2/3 code is duplicated.

    I have all the articles and news from Phoronix in the same place. I wouldn't expect something like that as a news.
