Since you are using a SuSE distribution, have you thought about using the SuSE 
experimental kernel from ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/people/mantel/next/RPM/

It has all the standard SuSE patches and includes a relatively recent XFS.  
Possibly XFS v1.1, but I'm not sure.

FYI: The stock SuSE 8.0 kernel also has XFS support, but the ACL handling is 
broken in such a way that xfsdump/xfsrestore don't handle ACLs correctly.
