[CentOS] centos 4.2 with reiserfs

I don't use reiserfs - but having a quick look at the 2.6.9-22 kernel 
source ...

It looks like RedHat patched the reiserfs source to change 'struct key' 
to 'struct reiserfs_key' (Patch2503) - I guess to prevent name conflicts 
with the 'Key management patches' (from the spec file).

However, it looks like they missed a couple ... not surprising as they 
don't support reiserfs, so they don't hit this problem.

The attached patch seems to allow it to compile - although not tested.
