The feature stuff needs to be handled for writing.

The feature stuff is slightly broken for reading.  Large file support is
a read-only compatibility feature (it is indicated by the
EXT2_FEATURE_RO_COMPAT_LARGE_FILE flag in the s_feature_ro_compat field
in the superblock), but we didn't support it without the first hunk in
the above patch so we should have rejected even r/o mounts of file systems
that have this flag set.  We only reject r/w mounts of such file systems.
I suppose this isn't a problem in Linux implementations of ext2fs because
implementations that don't support large files in ext2fs don't support
large files anywhere, so files larger than the old limit of 4GB are handled
as correctly as possible at read time so their presence need not prevent
mounting.
