This is the reiserfs part - it applies to 2.4.10-pre12 OK.

For the purposes of Robert's patch, conditional_schedule()
should be defined as

if (current->need_resched && current->lock_depth == 0) {
unlock_kernel();
lock_kernel();
}

which is somewhat crufty, because the implementation of lock_kernel()
is arch-specific. But all architectures seem to implement it the same way.
