Reiser is slower unless you use notails,nopreserve and be careful about
what blocksize you use. Small files, small blocks.

I find system time goes up, user time down, overall time spent scribbling
goes slightly down on average. That really depends on your usage. It
requires tuning to work well.

Also, when I had this deadlock, my one mounted reiser LV (what had almost
no files open) lost MUCH data after a reiserfsck. Practically EVERYTHING
in every dir. Needless to say, mke2fs /dev/vg00/opt...

I only know of the LFS projects out there...
