[Dirvish] Recommended filesystem

I'm finding the Dirvish FAQ a little cryptic on filesystem recommendations:

"While a journaling filesystem is a recommended the journals can have an
adverse affect on performance"

Any recommendations? Ext2 with fewer bytes per inodes? Ext3? ReiserFS? The
hard drive will only be used for Dirvish backups, so I have no concerns
for the filesystem other than what is best for Dirvish.

Thanks,

Ben
