I was reading the article 'Behind the ALTIX 3000' in the Feb. 2003 Linux Journal, and 
it mentioned
the following paper which compares Ext2, Ext3, ReiserFS, XFS, and JFS:

Filesystem Performance and Scalability in Linux 2.4.17
Originally published in Proceedings of the FREENIX Track: 
2002 USENIX Annual Technical Conference

Quoting the abtract:

Although the best-performing filesystem varies depending on the benchmark and system 
used, some
larger trends are evident in the data. On the smaller systems, the best-performing 
file system is
often Ext2, Ext3 or ReiserFS. For the larger systems and higher loads, XFS can provide 
the best
overall performance.
