yes and yes ... you may also compile it statically into the kernel
(which i think is the most simple solution) ... as said - i usually
use a small (64M) ext2 /boot because it is simple and does not hurt
(you may even mount it ro to avoid the fsck :-) ... you may also
have a look at my little stand-alone environment which might
migration or "daily care" of such an close to xfs only system
a bit simpler


hope that helps
