First, Reiserfs and Reiser4 are different filesystems, in case you're confusing them. Reiserfs has been in the kernel since forever and the code is very stable. You should have no trouble using it. However, the newer Reiser4 is probably not fit for the kernel yet and probably never will be as development has mostly stopped.
