[PATCH] Modify scripts/ver_linux to display reiserfsprogs version

From: Steven Cole (elenstev@mesatop.com)

Here is a patch to the linux/scripts/ver_linux script which adds
the reiserfsprogs utils to the items checked. If the reiserfsprogs
have not been installed, the modified script outputs nothing for
the Reiserfsprogs line (output looks the same as now).

The current version of reiserfsck does not have a "-V" or "--version"
option, but the version number is printed on the same line as "reiserfsprogs",
like this:

[root@localhost scripts]# reiserfsck --somethingbogus

<-------------reiserfsck, 2000------------->
reiserfsprogs 3.x.0b
reiserfsck: unrecognized option `--somethingbogus'
[the rest of the response snipped]

If reiserfsprogs reiserfsck is modified someday to respond to a
version option, then these two new lines in ver_linux can be simplified.

I'm sure that someone else can code something more elegantly, but
the following output was provided with the patched ver_linux script:

[root@localhost scripts]# ./ver_linux
-- Versions installed: (if some fields are empty or look
-- unusual then possibly you have very old versions)
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.4.1-ac4 #1 Tue Feb 6 17:16:08 MST 2001 i686 unknown
Kernel modules 2.4.2
Gnu C 2.95.3
Gnu Make 3.79.1
Linux C Library 2.1.3
Dynamic linker ldd (GNU libc) 2.1.3
Procps 2.0.7
Mount 2.10o
Net-tools 1.57
Console-tools 0.2.3
Reiserfsprogs 3.x.0b
Sh-utils 2.0
Modules Loaded

Here is the patch, against 2.4.1-ac4.
