The necessary patches to use files in Reiserfs with a Coda client cache
were integrated in Linux 2.4.4 and are working well.

Server side there is no problem at all. I haven't played with ext3 or
xfs, and only used reiserfs to test the new kernel module, so I can't
give a good opinion on the speed/reliability of the various journalling
filesystems. What I heard is that ext3 is a tad slower than ext2, and
Reiserfs is a bit faster, but that was a while ago and all depends on
the mix of fs operations. Reiser's directories are faster to do lookups
in or something, so most directory operations should be faster.
