your intuition was absolutely correct. The starting point of my partition
was moved only not up but down 63 sectors (63*512 bytes)
It all makes sense, the whole partition grew 63*512 bytes = 0x7E (126)
inodes that is why I found the root inode on inode 0xFE instead of 0x80.
Now the question remains how the hell should I move it back??
And what kind of an idiot program moves the partition table without any
confirmation? That would kill any filesystem.
