Bug#351623: linux-image-2.6.15-1-k7: breaks reiserfs

Package: linux-image-2.6.15-1-k7
Followup-For: Bug #351623

I had the same problem. The partition was created in Woody times when 
reiserfs didn't care about extended attributes. So this problem only was 
showing when I tried to upgrade old directories/files.

chattrs -R = /
(read man)

This solves some problems, but it doesn't work for symlinks. In 
Linux there isn't a chflags syscall (yet?) as in *BSD, and chattrs follows 
Remounting with noattrs didn't work, but rebooting with noattrs in fstab 
did it. It's worth trying it, specially if the machine is some miles/km 
away and won't have local access for a while.
If extended attributes are needed, the most convenient way was pointed 
out above:

reiserfsck --clean-attributes
