I've got XFS on a 560GB RAID NFS served to about 10-15 clients.  It's been
"in production" since early April running a pre-release kernel pulled
out of CVS in mid-March.  I haven't had *any* XFS related issues, and XFS
has saved my butt on multiple occasions.  The box will be upgraded to
RH7.1 and XFS 1.0.1 when that comes out.  It never got upgraded to the 1.0
release simply b/c it's being used and it's working (knock wood).
