I got a bunch of people email'ing me about this - so maybe a
clarification is in order.

so to clarify -> there is *no* xfs support in RHEL-5

In order to get xfs working on RHEL-5, one needs to buy an additional
Red Hat product which comes with xfs userland tools and the support etc
for these setups. Packages from this channel do not make it to
ftp.redhat.com. So feel free to yank the upstream crank if you want to
see that changed, or point Tru at the updated xfs tools and see if he
will consider updating the CentOS packages to match.
