I use ext3 on encrypted "/" using default attributes: 
has_journal resize_inode dir_index filetype needs_recovery sparse_super large_file

I also use ext3 on "/boot" and "/tmp", because tmpfs crashed (although
size limited to half of memory) my box under high memory consumption.

ext3 is the most commonly used filesystem on Linux on thus well tested
in many not so common configurations (like DRBD).
