libext2fs: extends commit c9a8c53b, with the same fix for ext2fs_flush2() and
ext2fs_image_super_write() on a Big Endian systems.

As follow-up to previous discussion 'dumpe2fs / mke2fs sigserv on sparc64'

Used find for files which refer to:

e2fsprogs.git$ find . -name \*.c | xargs grep -cl 'gdp = ext2fs_group_desc'
./lib/ext2fs/closefs.c
./lib/ext2fs/openfs.c
./lib/ext2fs/imager.c

And applied the same check for a null pointer.

Tested on a debian linux with sparc64 LDOM and ppc64 LPAR.

Fixes sigserv with test suite in "i_bitmaps" test.

As far as I know, the i_bitmaps test is passing on on sparc64 and
ppc64.  Search for i_bitmaps in:

https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=e2fsprogs&arch=sparc64&ver=1.45.5-2&stamp=1578527938&raw=0
   and
https://buildd.debian.org/status/fetch.php?pkg=e2fsprogs&arch=ppc64&ver=1.45.5-2&stamp=1578526270&raw=0

The bug in c9a8c53b was caused by SPARSE_SUPER being passed to
ext2fs_open().  But that doesn't happen in misc/e2image.

I can see optimizing ext2fs_flush() to skip byte-swapping the group
descriptors if the SUPER_ONLY flag is enabled.  And I can see
ext2fs_image_super_write() checking to see if the SUPER_ONLY flag is
set, and returning an error in that case.

But I don't think any of the current e2fsprogs are crashing at the
moment.  Am I missing something?

Regards,

Ted,

I'm using "master" branch for my tests, and debian probably using
"debian/master" .
Even test count is differ. In master branch 366 tests and in
"debian/master" 356 tests.

$ git br -vvv
  debian/master 0ba96395 [origin/debian/master] debian/patches: update
for 1.45.5-2 release
* master        32d33132 [origin/master] Merge branch 'maint' into next

Can you please try master branch on any (sparc64 or ppc64) debian
porter boxes? (There's new ppc64 porter box coming soon)
Or on ppc64/sparc64 "gcc compile test" farm machines?

And it's actually up to you, maybe my patch is irrelevant (and sorry
for the noise then), since i don't know internals for e2fsprogs.

Thanks.
