If there were, it might be risky to use it.

On a system that can handle both, I would just mount the reiserfs 
partition and an empty ext4 partition on another disk with enough 
space to hold the content, and do a deep recursive copy from the 
reiserfs to the ext4fs.  And when complete, do some checks to make 
sure the files were duplicated properly.

Do that for every reiserfs partition.

Maybe there is a more modern way, but I like simple.
