Ummm, there's also one more thing that could make those messages appear

Hence new inode is created. On-disk inode is read from the
disk. Function that reads inode from disk (reiserfs_read_inode2())
issues a warning if nlink==0 (this warning was added for exactly this
situation). If nlink is 0 ("dead inode...") we return error. Problem is
that though error is returned and inode is marked bad, iput() on this
new inode will still call reiserfs_delete_inode() that will complain
that it there is no on-disk inode because unlink() ultimately managed to
finish.
