You're wrong - ext2 supports it. You will need either a patched 2.2 or
a 2.4 kernel and glibc 2.2 (or patched 2.1) for support of this, also
your programs must be compiled with certain flags to enable it.

Two examples of LFS enabled Linux distributions are Red Hat Linux 6.2
Enterprise and Red Hat Linux 7.2
