I have no interest in maintaining reiser4 drivers. There is already a
patch package but patches are less interesting than an OOT build
package but it seems to be heavily outdated.

If someone wants to package it this way (provided it works with reiser4
whatsoever), please go ahead. Packaging rules are there in
kernel-package and m-a documentation.

I had a quick look at
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/people/edward/reiser4/reiser4-for-2.6/reiser4-for-2.6.35.patch.bz2
and unfortunatelly it won't AFAICS work as-is because it modifies a
little bit of other kernel sources in order to get access to some
internal functions.

Regards,
Eduard.
