  I've never looked at mkinitrd, but XFS as modules is working for me.
  I generated the initrd manually, but there's nothing fancy in it.  As
  someone else just posted, the modules must be loaded in this order:
  pagebuf.o xfs_support.o xfs.o

  (And, obviously the filesystem on the initrd _itself_ must be
  something compiled into the kernel.  Can't be XFS if it's modular.)

P.S.: I'm running 2.4.6-pre2-xfs CVS from two or three days ago.
