Description of problem:
I have found that if you are using XFS on the /boot partition the
installer hangs when trying to install the boot loader. Basically it says
installing boot loader and the hour Glass just spins and spins but it
never finishes.

I found the same issue on FC2. If I install the ext3 on the boot partition
there in no issue. I can then have XFS on the / and any other partitions.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Chose xfs for/boot partition doing graphical install 
2. During post setup configuration boot loader install hangs 

Expected Results:  Install boot loader. ;)

XFS isn't really supported.  If you have a patch, it's something that we'll look
at, but the stuff that's there is "as-is"
