I too have experienced file system corruption on x86 using ReiserFS;
three times, after which I moved everything (in a heavy use NFS file
server) to ext3 and have had no problems.  The Reiser problems were
always with text files (e.g. modules.conf becomes binary garbage, user
Mozilla config files become binary garbage) after a reboot.

I have found it challenging with XFS to find patches that work with some
kernels I want to run (and I don't have enough knowledge to deal with
some .rej files by hand).
