Hi Rainer,

You don't have to wait for the next CentOS release.  Just grab the source
for the latest stable kernel from kernel.org and roll your own.  I've been
doing so for years with Debian stable in order to avoid problems such as
this one you've run into (that and security holes being plugged).

I'm running xfsprogs 2.9.8-1lenny1 that shipped with kernel 2.6.26 on top of
kernel 2.6.32.9 and haven't had any problems.  At least, none so far with
mkfs.xfs, mount, xfs_db, or xfs_fsr.  I've not had a need for xfs_check,
xfs_repair, or other xfs utils.  My point being that older xfs tools seem to
work fine atop newer kernels.
