 The ext3 support should be implemented by extending the existing ext2 support (which is in src/sys/ufs/ext2fs), not by rewriting the whole thing over from scratch. It is possible that some of the ostensibly filesystem-independent code that was added along with the ffs WAPBL journaling extensions might be also useable as part of an ext3 implementation; but it also might not be.  The ext3 support should be implemented by extending the existing ext2 support (which is in src/sys/ufs/ext2fs), not by rewriting the whole thing over from scratch.

 The full requirements for this project include complete support for ext3 in both the kernel and the userland tools. It is possible that a reduced version of this project with a clearly defined subset of these requirements could still be a viable GSOC project; if this appeals to you please coordinate with a prospective mentor.  The full requirements for this project include complete support for ext3 in both the kernel and the userland tools.

   An additional useful add-on goal would be to audit the locking in the existing ext2 code; the ext2 code is not tagged MPSAFE, meaning it uses a biglock on multiprocessor machines, but it is likely that either it is in fact already safe and just needs to be tagged, or can be easily fixed. (Note that while this is not itself directly related to implementing ext3, auditing the existing ext2 code is a good way to become familiar with it.)
