The kernel still provides the reiserfs module and there is an upstream
maintainer for it.  But, judging by upstream activity, it doesn't seem
to have enough maintenance effort to be a sensible choice any more.

I can't say whether it should still be supported in os-prober.  This
would result in inconsistent behaviour between installation (where
reiserfs is no longer available) and the next GRUB update.

This sentence contradicts itself - no actually it doesn't.
