N-inode-attrs.patch uses previously unused field in reiserfs on-disk
inode structure to store inode attributes. It seems that in some cases
this field actually contains garbage. It may happen that you have got
immutable bit for your console device this way.

As a work around try to boot with ext2, do

lsattr /dev/console to check, and run

chattr -R -SAadiscu /reiserfs-mount-point

for each reiserfs file system to clear all attributes. Yes, it's silly.
