No, that's a file system that does not have a distinct inode limit (such
as Linux' ext2fs/ext3fs or BSD/Solaris ffs/ufs), but one that allocates
space for file names dynamically, such as Linux' reiserfs. Nothing wrong
here. The figures you see happen to be the 32-bit 2's complement of 1 or
a 32-bit ULONG_MAX, 2^32-1.

ReiserFS corruption can also wreak havoc. The best guess is obtained by
using a recent and recommended version of reiserfsck such as 3.6.4 and
check the file system. If the drive has troubles reading a block because
the HDD is failing, dmesg will tell.

ReiserFS seems not to recover very gracefully from unreadable meta data
