Interesting... I see two candidates in -pre3 - either fs/super.c cleanups
are fscked and something leaves superblock or superblock list locked
(either would have such effect, but that would have to happen at mount
or umount time and thing would lock up much earlier) or bio.c+ll_rw_blk.c+...
changes are acting up.

Obvious tests:
a) 2.5.1-pre2
b) 2.5.1-pre2 + fs/super.c from 2.5.1-pre3
c) 2.5.1-pre3 + fs/super.c from 2.5.1-pre2
(fs/super.c changes are independent from everything else).

Another possibility is silent fs corruption from 2.5.0/2.4.15 - if you
ran these kernels you really ought to do fsck -f (or whatever is used
to force recovery of reiserfs).
