What a hell ext2fs does with your reiserfs filesystem??
Do you have compiled reiser as a module or in kernel?
Do you have included and loaded reiserfs from your initrd
if it is a module?
Why in a case when your root is on reiserfs, you included
ext2 in kernel?

Ummm... :)

Doh!  Ext2 code should check more carefully if it
mounted (or attempted to) ext2 fs -- what a bizzare,
ext2 code treats reiserfs as ext2fs!..
