You've obviously never kept several dozen reiserfs filesystem images
(for use with Xen or User-Mode Linux) on a reiserfs filesystem, and
then had a hardware failure bad enough that the fsck had to try to
rebuild the b-tree, I take it?
From: Hans Reiser
That is fixed in V4. Until people start to use V4 they should compress
their V3 backup images that they store on V3, or store them on separate
partitions. I regret that fixing it without a disk format change was
Looks like fsck.reiserfs
can liberate reiserfs filesystem image out of loopback prison and glue it to the main one.
