That is expected with 3.10.x.

Yes, reiserfs support was removed after 3.6.x because
nobody seems to be using reiserfs anymore and it was
not worth the efford.
Let me know if you are interested in testing and
maintaining reiserfs specific patches, or want to
sponsor reiserfs specific development for 3.10+
Otherwise I'd suggest to boot/use a 3.6.x kernel and
Linux-VServer patch which still has the relevant
patches and migrate to a different filesystem in
