CentOS and its upstream source, RHEL, support ex3fs.   I'm not sure why 
you'd want to use anything else.   If you have a specific requirement 
for JFS, I'd suggest running a BSD or AIX system where JFS is native...  
If you need XFS, I'd run a Linux distribution that supports it natively.

If you roll your own hybrid operating system, you get to test and 
validate it, and if it breaks, you get to keep both pieces.
