Maybe you should mount your root with the option "conv" once, if you have created
it with
an older version of reiserfs that 3.6.26 (which is the one on 2.4.0-ac11).

I'm currently working on r1, which includes a new reiserfs/nfs patch and a fix
for lvm-install (the "make install" line was missing). Did you ever test
lvm-tools? I did not have the time jet over here.
