It looks to me as if the extN driver are compiled in to the kernels I

On my 13.2 machine:

grep -i ext2 /boot/config-3.16.6-2-desktop
# CONFIG_EXT2_FS is not set
CONFIG_EXT4_USE_FOR_EXT23=y

I went to my source tree ...

In all seriousness, why?

The kernel source is huge and has lots of code that is not compiled
into most kernels. I certainly never said the ext2 driver source had
been removed from the source tree.

There is a reason opensuse provides /boot/config*. It is the easiest
way for most of us to know what was actually compiled into the kernel.
