Reiser has been serving NFS files pretty well w/ 2.2 kernels.
2.4 broke, but the 2.4.3 I downloaded from Suses site (a develop/beta
kernel) works very well.

I guess you'll have to wait till suse 7.2 (or get that download kernel).

And yes, I know all about xfs, it's very good, very reliable on IRIX.
However I have had rather bad experiences trying to get any tech support
from SGI on their Linux boxen.

Still if/when XFS is out there, it will be a viable alternative for Reiser.
And I'd be more than happy to stresstest both side by side on some of my
machines here ;)
