> From Andrew's point of view, the biggest problems would appear to be the lack of direct I/O and extended attribute support. Direct I/O looks like it might not be too far in the future, but it does not appear that there is any immediate prospect of extended attributes. That means that, among other things, a reiser4 filesystem cannot support SELinux.
I am, perhaps, beginning to change my mind on this. Perhaps Resier4 should go into mainline, even if it is not as featureful as other Linux filesystems.
