Yeah, at least my / is usually small enough to fsck in a matter of
seconds. The bigger partitions that actually contain lots of data are
what I want journalling for.

Me too. I have also seen one instance where the code seems to have
spinning inside the kernel.
May or may not be journalling related.
Nevertheless I do not believe this problems to be show-stoppers for
