tracking bug for ext4

Please stop filing nonsense bugs without first understanding the situation.
ext4 will become the default filesystem once upstream recommends it for
adoption (i.e. 2.6.28). GRUB still does not support reading ext4 so we will
probably need a separate /boot on ext2/ext3, or wait for one of the SoC
projects to magically finish.

There is no need to clutter the bug tracker with this.
