I'd like to experiment with this filesystem. I don't want to argue the why and wherefores I was just wondering if a pre patched kernel was available anywhere?

You need to patch your own source tree and build your custom kernel. As of now, libaal-1.0.5.tar.gz, reiser4-for-2.6.32.patch, and reiser4progs-1.0.7.tar.gz is needed. Works like a charm.
