I am running ext4 instead of reiserfs today, but logging fsck has still
a *severe* impact on boot time performance. We have a few Debian file
servers in the office, e.g. providing /home/* via NFS. They are managed
remotely using some serial-over-line technology instead of a vga console.

A few months ago such a server went down without a clean umount. On the
next boot it was busy for >2h to show billions of lines about some tiny
repairs it has performed. Mo end was in sight. Then I gave up, interrupted
fsck, booted the host in single user mode, and rerun fsck writing to a log
file instead of the serial line. It was completed within 15 minutes. No
serious problems.
