if NetBSD is able to boot from ext2 (not tested yet) it could make performance 
differences - but this may depend from the storage media too. I#m not shure 
how far the ext2 driver in NetBSD is comparable in optimizations to linux or 
the "native" NetBSD filesystem drivers.

But if i read something like this:

i assume that you could run into further limitations if you are limited to the 
oldest ext2 revision (i.e. if you have to handle larger directory indexes or 
large files).

If "resizing" is the only reason for your to choose ext2 i would look for 
other options / solutions with i.e. resize_fss or the ported growfs.

hth a little
