The reiserfsck runs seemed to work OK so my only complaint
about that part is the oddball syntax needed to actually
make it fix anything.  I'm just wondering why it is so likely
to need the fsck at all (maybe 50% of my crashes when busy)
and if xfs would be better about that.  I thought it was
supposed to know what was committed to disk and never leave
it in an inconsistent state.
