I think you can manipulate those features somewhat from FreeBSD with
tunefs, but I don't know how.  Alexander Viro said something about this on
comp.unix.bsd.freebsd.misc.  In Deja, I would do a search in CUBFM for
Alexander Viro and ext2fs.  I kinda wish Viro would read this list, as he
seems to be an expert on areas common to both FreeBSD and Linux.
