It may be the way reiserfs sync's data to the disk. In order for
reiserfs to squeeze the performance it does out of the filesystem, it
may be taking shortcuts that the kernel doesn't like.

By crash you mean panic? Maybe try installing ksymops into the kernel to
see whats going on and then reporting to the linux-kernel ml?
