It's not, md is the kernel driver. When your raid misses one disk it will run in degraded mode. This when XFS will perform worse. When you replace the disk the resyncing was not always op to speed.

This readme was made when 1.0 was released. You should pick up the latest XFS patch. There are numerous fixes on the linux kernel front which also make XFS behave better.
Are the newest patches in CVS or on the ftp-server?
The patches on the FTP site have the same fixes as the ones that are commited to CVS.
The CVS tree however also tracks Linus -pre versions. But the patches are provided for people that don't want to run -pre kernels.

The problems with 2.95 were hanging processes. I believe this also occured on normal kernels.
That is the only problem with 2.95 I know of.
