When I switch from ext2 to reiser I found the static part of LFS dropped
from about 70 minutes to abaout 60. Also I found recovering from a power
cut the reiser about 4 seconds for 10GB. I was expecting several minutes
from the way ext2 behaved.

Now the only time I do not use reiser is for floppy, ls120 and zip disks.
These have tar.bz2's sent directly to the device with no file system
or partion structure.

Use the source Luke...
