OK, these patches may or may not work, and the problems people are
experiencing may or may not have anything to do with Reiserfs :)
It might be interesting to ask the developpers lurking in reiserfs-list
if they consider Reiserfs on PowerPC to be a safe bet. AFAIK, nobody in
the core team has done much porting work except to Alpha... So, be a
good beta tester and send in bug reports ;)
I'd just like to add that I've been running most of my (x86) box on
Reiserfs for over a year now, and I've yet to see it even hiccup.
