    Without your patches, "dbench -x" was pretty much instantly causing the
    threads to lock up, forcing me to reboot the box. With LOCKDEP enabled,
    warnings were printed. After applying your patches (and a reboot) I've run
    "dbench -x" for quite a while now with different runtimes and number of
    clients and it's not locking up any more. I've tested with:

    CONFIG_REISERFS_FS=y
    CONFIG_REISERFS_CHECK=y
    CONFIG_REISERFS_PROC_INFO=y
    CONFIG_REISERFS_FS_XATTR=y
    CONFIG_REISERFS_FS_POSIX_ACL=y
    # CONFIG_REISERFS_FS_SECURITY is not set

    ...and a few "Kernel hacking" options set. Full config and dmesg:

    http://nerdbynature.de/bits/2.6.33-rc1/reiserfs/t3/

    (although I'm not really testing -rc1 but latest mainline -git
    and your changes pulled)

    So, feel free to add:

    Tested-by: Christian Kujau <lists@nerdbynature.de>

    I can't help with the code review though :-\

    Thanks!
    Christian.
