Shouldn't there be ext4 too? At least currently (hrev39923) DriveSetup doesn't show my ext4 in "File system" column, nor I able to mount it.

This patch is for the partition type ID. (which doesn't have anything to to with the File systems themselves.).

  • ReiserFS/Ext3/Ext4/etc use the Linux Native type.
  • NTFS uses the HPFS/NTFS type.

Think of the type ID as a sticky label on a plastic storage container (partition), the label doensn't *have* to match the contents.. it just should to keep things organized :)
