CONFIG_EXT4DEV_COMPAT: Enable ext4dev compatibility

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_EXT4DEV_COMPAT:

Help text

Starting with 2.6.28, the name of the ext4 filesystem was renamed from ext4dev to ext4. Unfortunately there are some legacy userspace programs (such as klibc's fstype) have "ext4dev" hardcoded.

To enable backwards compatibility so that systems that are still expecting to mount ext4 filesystems using ext4dev, chose Y here. This feature will go away by 2.6.31, so please arrange to get your userspace programs fixed!
