I'll let Eric or Lukas comment, but as far as I know the ext4 in the
RHEL 6 kernels has been quite stable (there are a lot of bug fixes
that have been backported to the RHEL 6 kernel, and while it doesn't
have some of the newer ext4 features, it doesn't have any of the more
exciting bugs that might come with the newer features :-).

So I really would strongly suspect the SAN or the SAN-attached storage
as being flaky, causing the file system corruptions which is leading
to the kernel and e2fsck complaining.
