There is a small tool which can convert filesystems without data backup.
The idea is to use sparse files support of primary filesystem. We create a sparse image of block device, mkfs secondary filesystem on it, mount it, mv files from primary filesystem to mounted image and then map image to the device.

The tool and a bit more info are at http://tzukanov.narod.ru/convertfs/.
