No, xfs is not (yet?) moved to the unsupported rpm:

/lib/modules/2.6.0-0.test9.1.70/kernel/fs/xfs/xfs.ko

The more important point is will RH introduce proper anaconda support
for XFS? At least like jfs/reiserfs have with "hidden" enablers? The
XFS patches are said to have found their way into anaconda, but are
not enabled (didn't check lately).
