Description of problem:
Impossible to unmount a ReiserFS filesystem on a 3ware RAID array.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mount a ReiserFS filesystem sitting on a 3ware RAID array
2. Attempt to unmount the same filesystem
Actual Results: unmount process goes into an uninterruptible sleep and no
other mount/unmount command will work.
Expected Results: filesystem should be unmounted!
I'm using a Escalade 6000 with 8x80GB disks. The system worked fine with

filesystem on that disk manifest themselves (disappearing files etc.).

that kernel won't compile under 7.1 (even with the gcc update to 88: it
gives a -fno-merge-constants error) and I'd like to disable the
Please check bug 45628 for the patch against reiserfs there.
It should make it work again.
