The GCC developers pointed out that this is really a bug in e2fsprogs,
because that code violates C aliasing restrictions.  See
http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=36775 for more details.

I then downloaded the newest e2fsprogs-1.40.11 from sourceforge.  After
examining the revised ext2fs.h, it is clear that this bug has already
been recognized and corrected.  Also, I've verified that 1.40.11 works
correctly on my system.

I recommend that ELDK migrate to e2fsprogs-1.40.11 so that others don't
trip over the same problem.
