Default Linux 5.4 new y2k38 message on filesystem mount

I noticed this message in a recent Linux 5.4 system log after mounting an ext2 file system:

ext2 filesystem being mounted at / supports timestamps until 2038 (0x7fffffff)

The message warns that ext2 filesystems have traditional Unix 32-bit timestamps and will not save create/modify/access timestamps newer than 19 Jan 2038.

Something like this could also be in BSD kernels to warn about ufs1 file systems.
Ufs2 file sytems are ok.
When you see a good move, look for a better one.
