I have managed to reproduce the error both in the installer itself and in the chroot of a newly installed system, so the issue is not specific to the installer. The problem is that creating the file system seems to go fine, but mounting it afterwards fails with the following in dmesg: XFS: bad version XFS: SB validate failed xfs_check gives no errors. After downgrading to version 2.9.4-1, a newly created partition could be mounted again. Mounting a partition created with 2.9.4-1 will still mount successfully after upgrading to 2.9.6-1 (which I guess is logical). Tested using i386/testing with a 2.6.22 kernel. Cheers, FJP
