Subject: [PATCH] reiserfsprogs: Warn on block sizes > 4k
From: Jeff Mahoney <jeffm@suse.com>

 Filesystems created with block size > page size will not work until that
 support is added to the kernel. Filesystems with block size > 4k (lowest
 page size supported in Linux) will not work on all systems. This patch
 adds a check and a warning in those conditions, informing the user of the
 caveats of using a larger block size. It can be overridden with -f.
