While I am NOT speaking with the official Red Hat voice, I would say that
this particular question has been answered before, ad-nauseum. ReiserFS
isn't ready for production use. As for the Brazilians, good for them. If
you use their patch and hose your system, don't come crying to me.

I wouldn'd say we don't want to add ReiserFS support. At the risk of
repeating myself, it's just not ready.

If you insist, go for it! Good Luck.
