journal-601 means that writing of the block into the journal area failed.
journal-615 means that writing of the commit record into the journal area failed.

Reiserfs cannot work reliably if there are io errors on access to
journal area. So, if this is turns out to be hardware problem (as it
looks to be, judging by scsi error messages), you will have to resort to
changing drive. There is also not well tested support for relocating
journal to another device or different place on a device.
