Subject[PATCH] Fix 2.5.3pre reiserfs BUG() at boot time
[resent because t-offline's outgoing mail server seems to be eating/
not delivering mail. sorry if it appears multiple times]

This patch fixes an reiserfs BUG() at boot time introduced by the
inode cleanups. The problem is that it passes a 20 char name to
kmem_cache_create() ("reiserfs_inode_cache") but kmem_cache_create()
only allows 19 character names and BUG()s for longer names.

The patch fixes this in a low tech approach. It's required to boot
a 2.5.3preX machine with reiserfs compiled in.
