this is true, im not sure what reiserfs did, probably they just
implemented this ioctl.  ideally there should probably be a
standardized and generic call for inode flags like this, but since not
just implementing the ext2 ioctl is fine.  (chattr does not check for
ext2 it just calls the ioctl and if the fs doesn't support it the user
gets `not a typewriter').
