It looks like even if you specify a filesystem time other than ext3 for kiwi to
use (in the type section), it will use ext3 for any remaining partitions (at
least for oemboot configurations). The use of a journaled filesystem though
isn't optimal for certain environments (i.e., usb flash) where the lifetime of
the media will be severely limited without wear leveling. The performance
overhead for writing to the journal and disk also mitigates against the use of
a journaled filesystem. If Kiwi could use the filesystem type specified for
all partitions created (or add support for different filesystems on an
individual basis with new schema options) it would offer greater control.

Reproducible: Always
