Whatever filesystem you decide to put there.

There are no codes for ext3,ext4.  There is a code for "Linux Fileystem".
Actually, you can put any code you feel like, and put any filesystem
you feel like.  It won't make any difference for creating and
mounting the filesystem.  The codes are strictly for documentation.
In some cases, they are also used for heuristics, like auto starting
raid arrays that are marked with the raid code.
