I honestly don't know. Nor do I know whether it's a real journaling file
system (as someone else brought up), only that SuSE describes it as one.

All I know about ReiserFS is what SuSE says about their new features in
6.4. From the relevant web page

Kernel 2.2.14

 USB-Support for most mice, keyboards, and printers 
 3,5 GB memory extension 
 ReiserFS support (journaling filesystem, online growable partitions) 
 Raw-device support for databases 

Yes, their kernel also includes USB support, ported back from the 2.3
kernel series.
