Add preseedable partman-ext3/lazy_itable_init question, which if true
runs mkfs.extwith '-E lazy_itable_init', greatly speeding up mkfs on
large drives (LP: #556621). This defaults to false since it is
currently unsafe for use on areas of disk that previously contained a
filesystem.

Warn when reformatting an existing misaligned partition for use as
ext3/ext4, since it will result in poor performance and this is about
the only sensible opportunity to fix it (LP: #530071).

* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - Special case loopmounted filesystems as it's safer to format the
    underlying file, not the device.
  - Offer ext4 before ext3.

* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - Special case loopmounted filesystems as it's safer to format the
    underlying file, not the device.
  - Enable ext4 support, and offer it before ext3.
* Drop ext3/ext4 relatime default, as it's now the default in the kernel.

Offer ext4 before ext3, since it's now the default.

22. By Colin Watson on 2009-04-06

Make valid_filesystems/ext4 executable (LP: #354851).

* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - Special case loopmounted filesystems as it's safer to format the
    underlying file, not the device.
  - Default to mounting ext3 and ext4 with relatime.
  - Enable ext4 support.

20. By Colin Watson on 2009-01-08

Add ext4 support (LP: #293465). Some translatable strings are still
incorrect, but that will be fixed once this gets into Debian.

* Resynchronise with Debian. Remaining changes:
  - Special case loopmounted filesystems as it's safer to format the
    underlying file, not the device.
  - Default to mounting ext3 with relatime.
  - check.d/nomountpoint_ext3: Make $RET look for a boolean value.

* check.d/nomountpoint_ext3:
  - Make $RET look for a boolean value (LP: #256459)
