i did some testing with xfs kernel and crypto patch from
http://www.kerneli.org . i guess thats the one you are talking about.
but i was not able to make a xfs filesystem on the loopback, since the
encrypted filesystems are mounted on loopback device. it worked fine
with ext2, but some errors on making the xfs. when i remember right i
was able to mount the loopback, but could not write on it. i also can't
remember the errors (been quite a while). 

if someone is interested a could do some more testing. right now i am
using ext2 on my encrypted filesystems.
