At the moment, Syslinux doesn't support the 64bit feature of EXT4
(which is now set on by default).
Considering the following code, I am wondering whether such support can
be added to Syslinux.
GRUB2 supports the 64bit feature of EXT4 since:
Experimental support for 64-bit
Since then, there seem to be some additional improvements to the
Diff since _just-before_ ext4 64bit support was originally introduced
in GRUB2 up until now:
Perhaps looking at these specific Diffs in GRUB2 would somehow
contribute towards adding support to this 64bit feature in Syslinux?
Unfortunately, supporting this EXT4's 64bit feature is seen as
"almost-critical" (or worse) by common users and by distro maintainers
modern Linux distributions.
