that'd depend on:
- which glibc, which kernel, which version of xfs vs reiserfs
i've lost partitions and/or files with all of the fs including ext3
- latest gottcha is when you start to use loopfiles inside
jfs vs xfs and ext3 is too big ( inodes ) and too slow
lesson: don't play around with old version and at least its on
my experimental boxes so it wasn't critical
if you're going to use newer version, backup first ...
including the old version of the working fs binaries and libs
