I use lvm + reiserfs for this purpose. Each vserver resides in a logical
volume (mounted under /vserver/somename) and using reiserfs for its
filesystem. Logical volumes can be resized and ditto for reiserfs (even
online resizing of filesystem possible though care must be taken to make
sure you have enough space when you shrink the filesystem).

One drawback is that you cannot do unification but in your case of 4
vservers this may not be a major concern.
