I would tend to recommend ext3 in data=writeback and make sure that
it's mounted with noatime over using ext2 - for the sole reason that
if the system shuts down unexpectedly, you don't have to worry about a
long fsck when bringing it back up.

Performance between the two filesystems should really be negligible
for Postgres logging.
