Well, it seems it is making the rounds in 2022. I have not received an 
email from Linux Kernel Mailing List <linux-kernel@...r.kernel.org> (and 
neither the Virtual Box developers mailing list
< 
https://www.virtualbox.org/pipermail/vbox-dev/2022-February/015710.html 
 > ) since sometime within Jan. 26, 2022, to the present; hence, I 
assume somebody (or some skiddie) unsubscribed me.

  The last Jan. 26, 2022, email I sent to the list also included the 
reiser4 developer as an addressee -- as I have experienced some issues 
with newer kernels (and thought someone else might even provide a hint).
< https://lkml.org/lkml/2022/1/26/204 >

Apropos (off-topic, sorry, yet if this email makes it to the Linux 
kernel mailing list and other developers know him), I am somewhat 
concerned about Mr. Shiskin's well being  -- as his continued Reiser4 
work for the Linux kernel is appreciated by at least those of us who -- 
in stark contrast to 'the chosen ones' -- we do not pretend to be 
morally superior to judge and pontificate to others.

Last reiser4 patch (hack) that is working decently for me:
< https://metztli.it/bullseye/reiser4-ryzen.png >

I will resubscribe to Linux Kernel Mailing List 
<linux-kernel@...r.kernel.org>; unless, of course, I have been placed on 
a black list by the Penguins and/or their 'morally virtuous' 
govt/corporate overlords ;-)


Best Professional Regards.
