xfstests decides if a filesystem supports attributes by trying to set them on
the root inode, but reiserfs does not allow this. If this is actually the
intended behaviour of reiserfs then xfstests should use a different check, but
I'm guessing it's a bug, perhaps in mkfs.reiserfs.

That's much better, thank you. I will send a revision soon. For some reason
_scratch_mkfs_sized did not have support for jfs, but it was trivial to add.
