I use reiserfs for quite a number of years now and it seems to work
fine. You can resize the volume when it is mounted, although I prefer
unmounting it first if that is possible. It also shrinks, I believe even
online, but I don't do shrinking very often. (I have done, but
filesystems tend to grow rather than shrink.)
