Just to stop the FUD a bit:

The last known reiserfs NFS problem (not being able to resolve file handles
again under heavy load) has been fixed with 2.4.5. Before that
it has been several years been documented as being fixable with a patch.
The basic problem BTW was that Linux cannot handle 64bit inode numbers.
XFS runs into the same problem when you start using filesystems >2TB.
