The correct procedure to do this is NOT to create a new fs on the second
RAID volume. What you do is this:
(NB: I've only done this on HP-UX before, and even if linux lvm is modelled
after  HP's I do not know if there are any error here, but I REALLY doubt
it ). 

* add the RAID device to the volume group the first RAID device belong to
using vgextend. 
* increase the logical volume you have your reiserfs on using lvextend
* resize the reiser fs using procedure in http://www.namesys.com/rsz.html

And it seems it can all be done online!
