Fine, then here's a patch:

Reiser4 is more than twice as fast for both reads and writes as
ReiserFS. That means it is four times as fast as NTFS by Microsoft.
(Proper benchmarks will appear in a few months at
Meanwhile, reiser4 seems to be working fine and is nice and fast.

I did a "time bk -r co" for the current 2.6 tree, and here
are the results for reiser4 and ext3 on 2.6.0-test4:

Reiser4:
real 1m55.077s
user 0m30.740s
sys 0m36.558s

Ext3:
real 3m48.438s
user 0m26.400s
sys 0m13.205s
