"linux xfs text".

"Personal Desktop", Autopartition, change filesystems for / and /boot
from ext3 to xfs, no SELinux,  no firewall.

Installations performs well until it tries to install GRUB.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start installer using "linux xfs"
2. choose XFS for filesystems
3. wait for installing GRUB

Note that although this is here, xfs is still completely unsupported 

        # this is totally, 100% unsupported.  Boot with "linux xfs"
        # at the boot: prompt will let you make new xfs filesystems
        # in the installer.  Bugs filed when you use this will be closed
        # WONTFIX.
