Description of problem:
If i boot up the installer with "linux xfs" and i select to format all
filesystems with XFS, anaconda hangs while installing grub.
Apparently, it only takes to format /boot with Ext3, and the problem
disappears. I do not know if this is the minimal requirement to make
the bug go away but it appears so.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot installer with "linux xfs"
2.format all partitions with XFS

Actual Results:  The installer hangs while installing grub.

Expected Results:  The installer should install grub successfully.
