Reiserfs oopses are better off reported in the upstream bugzilla, or posted to
firstname.lastname@example.org, where the upstream developers may give it attention.
The upstream bugzilla Enter Bug page indicates that they only want bugs from
mainline or -mm kernels. Is sending Fedora kernel bugs up to them a standard
Yes, as we don't carry any patches to reiserfs, so it's extremely likely that
this is an upstream bug.
