So far as I can tell. Kernel output is generally more trustworthy than userspace tools.

xfs has had some nasty bugs recently in the recovery tools. It was also designed
for the kind of machines that never have a power failure, so it doesn't cope as well
as other modern file systems even though it's journalled.

I've been using jfs for a few years and I've had no problems. It has a
maximum volume size of 2 Petabytes which should be sufficient.

Why not? ;)
With a volume that big you might as well. Probably best not to allocate
it all at once though.
