Why don't you recompile a kernel with support for all your hardware and
replace the one on the bootdisk? I normally do this. The fact that the
bootdisk has the proper libraries and utilities to create XFS partitions
is good enough for me. I handle the kernel to support my hardware 100%.

I don't know if you've tried this, but the read-write option for the image
that loads the XFS-aware kernel should help you out. Don't forget to
update your fstab, as well, to put "rw" in the default options. :)

Just in case ... :-)
