We are using ext3 but with "data=journal". In this case your table shows: 
3291 removing 50M data (oper/s) for ext3 and only 
1967 removing 50M data (oper/s) for reiserfs

plus we have tested reiser and found it slower than ext3 with data=journal
(as allways in our testcase/settings).

Thank you for your help,
