I believe that would require a modified reiserfsck (or fsck.reiserfs).

Hmm.  I just looked at the reiserfsck man page.  It seems that it now
supports the "-a" and "-p" options, and just "[prints] some information
about the specified file system, [checks] if error flags in the
superblock are set and [does] some light-weight checks."  So it may be
"safe" now to have it set to run fsck on bootup.  This is from
reiserfsprogs with Debian version 1:3.6.11-1 (from unstable).  I'll try
it out the next time I reboot (which won't be for a while).
