   At compile time, make install in linux/fs/reiserfs/utils fails because
reiserfsck is not being compiled.

   At runtime, I have run into an unexpected problem compiling a kernel on
reiserfs (i.e. the kernel tree is on a reiserfs partition). When I exit
from make config, the screen shows

Saving your kernel configuration...

and that's it, the shell prompt never returns. On the console:

ReiserFS version 3.6.1
0: reiserfs_get_block
PAP-12285: balance_leaf: insert_size must be 0 (4)

and the system is locked so solid that <Alt-SysReq-s> and <Alt-SysReq-u>
don't work. After a restart, I could reproduce the problem, again when
exiting from make menuconfig. Reiserfs was compiled into the kernel. The
disk where I can reproduce this problem:

   In both cases, the file system was mounted manually with "mount -t
