comment How do you *tag* a partition as ext4?
For the record, just adding extents caused the partition to be recognized as ext4 at boot time. Enabling uninit_bg made it recognizable as ext4 by mount, but at boot time it would try to mount it as ext3 and failed. I'm not sure if this is true for every machine out there.

I am considering this option. The problem is that it's a huge amount of files and before we process them we'll have to re-sync. I'm not sure how the re-syncing process will work with symlinks and how the processing software will work with it (we have some control over that).

@poige apparently it doesn't happen automamagically, but does it happen when creating a new dir? when enabling new features? That information is not in the question and answer you linked to.

The subdir limit has nothing to do with inodes. As you say, it's hardcoded in the driver and the ext4 has a different hardcoded limit. I'm not sure if switching to extent is required to have the bigger limit or not, hence this question. I understand you can switch to extent and/or new directories/files use extent. This is something I'm trying to test.

@HaukeLaging maybe, what do you have in mind?
