I use XFS in _all_ my production servers and desktops since ages. My
comment was related to "why use ugly patches now, when we can use a
vanilla implementation in the next release with 2.6" from the point of
view of a developer or a maintainer. 
If it were trivial to maintain or if a massive amount of people were
asking for urgent XFS support, it would became standard install since
RHL 8.
