Well, i can tell you that FC2 kernels supports xfs - however they don't
install any xfsprogs (mkfs.xfs, xfsdump, etc.) or acl stuff - and the
installer won't create XFS partitions - just ext2,ext3.

On my sorta-testing PFc2 box here, I've installed:
xfsprogs-2.5.6-1
libattr-2.4.8-1
libacl-2.2.15-1
acl-2.2.15-1
attr-2.4.8-1
xfsdump-2.2.13-0
dmapi-2.0.8-0

... from the oss.sgi.com FTP site and so far it all seems to work - I've
created a couple XFS filesystems and I've been building and burning DVD
ISOs from them.

That's a good question, and if I had my FC2 CDs with me I'd feed them to
the VMware gods and find out.  Don't feel like blowing up a production
system today, though I imagine a RH7.3+XFS -> FC2 upgrade would be
interesting to watch (like say how a train wreck is interesting to
watch...)
