xfs is only not allowed for /boot.  If you make a small (100 MB) ext3 partition
for /boot, you can have your / partition be xfs and that should work for you. 
See bug 138673.

Thanks. I read the FAQ and readme, searched for xfs in the bug summeries, and
googled and didn't come across this important fact.
