SubjectRe: Is ReiserFS really a journaling file system, or is it really just a synchronous-metadata file system like BSD FFS?

Of course. That solves only half of the problem: the security issue. OTOH
in a fileserver usually files gets not overwritten so reiserfs should take
care of the main concern.

For full data consistency I don't think it's possible without data
journaling.
