You may need to perform a reiserfsck --rebuild-tree


  This option rebuilds the entire file system tree using leaf nodes
  found on the device. Normally you only need this option if the --check
  option reports "corruption that can be fixed only during
  --rebuild-tree". You are strongly encouraged to make a backup copy of
  the whole partition before attempting the --rebuild-tree option.

Good luck.
