No, but this is a 2.2.19 kernel without lfs and that is a partition so it
shouldn't matter.

In my original email I stated that e2fsck works if linked to libc5; I just
discovered that I tested e2fsck 1.27+libc5 and  1.29/1.32 + uclibc.
So, though unlikely,  there could be a problem in newer e2fsck.
I'll see if I can reproduce uclibc + e2fsck 1.27.
