Hmm, well we've been using XFS on software raid's with a 2.4.29 kernel on roughly 10 NFS servers for over a year now without problems. Though we are rolling them up to FC4 as they become available.

Using who's kernel source/package and XFS version? Last I looked, the SGI XFS CVS tree [for 2.4.x] was based on 2.4.31. With it, you can export an XFS fs over NFS, but the clients that mount it cannot actually open any files. Trying results in i/o errors.
