And reiserfs and ... that's why I didn't do it using ->compat_ioctl(),
several other filesystems make use of some of the ext{2,3} ioctls.

I think the ifdef's are a possible solution for now. But it's very
silly, as we just want some of the ioctl and type definitions.
Perhaps ext3_fs.h can be arranged to still export the ioctl types even
when CONFIG_JBD is disabled?
