ext2fs slow?

I got a new hard disk for Christmas and moved my LFS system to a 13GB 
partition on the new hard disk. My problem is now that while mounting this 
partition in read-only mode is fast, mounting it read-write takes many 
seconds, at least when done the first time. This slows down booting a lot. 
Is this an ext2fs problem? Mounting the vfat partition of the same size on 
the same disk is fast.
I've seen ReiserFS mentioned around here several times. Is that one 
mounted faster (I'm not concerned about faster fschks. I know that 
ReiserFS is faster in that respect) ?
