Good to hear - I'm an avid tomsrtbt user.

In theory, you do not really need to support ext3 in the kernel, as long
as your e2fsck is new enough, because you can always clean up the
journal with e2fsck and then mount as ext2.

As a side note - there are configure options to e2fsprogs to reduce the
size of the resulting binaries (you may want to leave some of them
enabled if you will be including the relevant tools on tomsrtbt):

This is a common 2.2 problem.  Simply rename the colliding functions
in reiserfs to reiserfs_<foo>.  I believe they are journal_start and
one other function.  I normally did this with sed on the reiserfs patch
before applying it.
