I use ext3 on same hardware, and (clean) mounts do not take any 
significant time:

[   19.209034] EXT3-fs: mounted filesystem with ordered data mode.
[   19.209039] VFS: Mounted root (ext3 filesystem) readonly.

[   22.708260] EXT3 FS on sda1, internal journal
[   22.711688] usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

The entire boot process takes about a minute.
