RE: reiser4 kernel patch....
Just checked - the Andrew Morton -mm4 patch has the offending cassert
This is why the reiser4 stuff compiles on 64bit platforms in that patch.

Subject: RE: reiser4 kernel patch....
It was actually a build problem - a cassert() in coord.c triggers an odd
switch statement error (by design).
Essentially the author is trying to make certain that no new members were
added to the coord_t type.
At least in my environment, it failed to take into account that structure
packing on Alpha is by default different than on x86 machines.
I was able to add " __attribute__((packed))" to the end of the coord
structure and have it build (and work) fine.
I just wasn't sure where to report this, since it was contained in the
debian reiser4 patch to the debian 2.6.8 kernel sources.
