Currently we can only create ext4 (ext2) file systems with 1 kB block size. Sysinst used to use MINIX file system with 4 kB block size and going to 1 kB blocks decreased installation performance. Improve mkext4 to allow creating other block sizes and use 4 kB for HelenOS installation (and perhaps by default).
