i found reiserfs useful in the ext2/ext3 days, but now i find it completely 
irrelevant with ext4

my understanding of libattr/libacl is that the userland interface is FS 
independent.  once the FS supports xattrs (if the kernel says it does, i'd 
believe that), then that should be all you need.

while i've never tested xattrs on reiserfs (as alluded earlier, i've dropped 
all my reiserfs usage in favor of ext4), but i know tmpfs works (once you've 
enabled it in the kernel).
