Yes it was against the v0.4 tag. 

mkfs.jffs2 and genext2fs both use -P as the short version of
--squash-perms, so mkfs.ubifs will have to use something different. No
big deal however (although they are pretty similar otherwise).

Also, what is the purpose of --max-leb-cnt? It seems to be just a safety
check that the volume will fit? It's a bit unusual.
