Periodically fsck-ing ext3 takes much more time. AFAIR when you didn't
run fsck for 28(?) reboots or after several hundrets of uptime
days... fsck_reiserfs3 is also slow (relatively).  Under Linux
fsck_jfs is really fast in all cases and is stable (for me?), I never
used XFS.

I'm not sure about ffs but I don't recomment you LFS for use in
production.  I have lots of problems with it even on my home machine
used primarily for development.
