I aggree. The only changes which are bigger then a few small line fixes
that were made upstream was reducing the use of the Big Kernel Lock.
Except of that it's pretty dead and I haven't sawn any progress about
the BKL lock recently on grub-devel.
Reiserfs is now pretty much dead upstream.

(I'll also drop the reiser4 udebs. When I took the packages over I
already wondered why the previous maintainer added them, but kept them.)
