ext2: Do not update mtime of a moved directory
One of our users is complaining that his backup tool is upset on ext2 (while it's happy on ext3, xfs, ...) because of the mtime change. The problem is: mkdir foo mkdir bar mkdir foo/a Now under ext2: mv foo/a foo/b changes mtime of 'foo/a' (foo/b after the move). That does not really make sense and it does not happen under any other filesystem I've seen. More complicated is: mv foo/a bar/a This changes mtime of foo/a (bar/a after the move) and it makes some sense since we had to update parent directory pointer of foo/a. But again, no other filesystem does this. So after some thoughts I'd vote for consistency and change ext2 to behave the same as other filesystems. Do not update mtime of a moved directory. Specs don't say anything about it (neither that it should, nor that it should not be updated) and other common filesystems (ext3, ext4, xfs, reiserfs, fat, ...) don't do it. So let's become more consistent. Spotted by ronny.pretzsch@dfs.de, initial fix by Jörn Engel.
