Answer is that I don't know yet.

There is an XFS patch for grub available.  Whether it is included in
the Red Hat shipped version I don't know.  It's on my list of things
to investigate.  For the time being, however, grub is disabled in the
XFS installer.

If anyone feels like checking the grub source RPM and/or send me a
patch I can roll in, feel free.
