am pretty sure finding a file in a directory in reiserfs is O(log n) in
the worse case. (Actually, I think that except for HUGE directories [far
larger than /usr/lib] it accesses two or three blocks of disk in every
case, hence being O(1)).

Still, nobody has said. What filesystems available on Debian have a
better than linear search time for open, and are they used by a
default Debian install?
