why not go for a recent -ac kernel and skip patching :)
( in -ac are included both xfs and dm )

and someone posted a dm-patch against xfs kernel on the list

i'm using lvm1 & xfs ( and i really wanted to check lvm2) but because 
xfs, devmaper & soft raid do not work all together i'm staing with lvm1 :(
