This is the way to go.

No, I don't think so.

With older kernels, my laptop used to lock up quite frequently on resume 
and I've never had any problems with disk corruption - I use ext3. I 
don't have any experience with JFS though. 

The reasons I use ext3 are that I don't need extreme performance, it's 
very well tested and if something goes wrong there are good recovery
