Patch already included in 2.4.5-ac1 announced, something to do with locking
after umount, on shutdown.

2.4.4 but backout the 'Run child first after fork' patch.  2.4.5-pre1 rom
The alternative is to use SuSE where Reiser is included and tested.  Some of
the issues maybe due to failure to update the tools with new kernel
versions, it's new stuff, bleeding edge so you have to be careful.
