I think you may have intended to snip out something else ...

The ReiserFS work that I did was with different HW and didn't include any
3ware RAID cards (IIRC it was a Dell RAID but that was quite a while back).

But we've had good stability issues with EXT3 on 3ware cards with RAID 5
once we upgraded our oldest card to the 9000 series.  Since ours are
production systems, we prioritized stability over performance and have
been satisfied.  We are now revisiting other FS types (XFS especially)
but still need the stability.  I'm interested in what happens for us.
