Statically linked e2fsprogs binaries for Android

I needed to resize the ext4 filesystem of the /data partition on my Android phone and spent ages looking for a prebuilt binary of resize2fs (since it isn't included in ROMs or recovery). I didn't find one and so spent ages trying to build it myself. To save others the trouble, here are the binaries.

Just the main ones (mke2fs, resize2fs, tune2fs, fsck): tar.xz 630K or zip 1.5M
Everything tar.xz 1.6M or zip 5.8M
