Bug#508799: debian-installer: Please add warning to partioner when using XFS on dm-crypt

Package: debian-installer
Version: nightly build ~ 20081202
Severity: normal

When using nightly build of d-i from around 20081202 and using dm-crypt with LVM and XFS on top of this I run into a grave warning. When mounting the XFS partition after rebooting the system told me that XFS will disable write barriers since these are not supported on dm_crypt. Since this can cause data loss I think a warning should be added to the manual partitioner that there is a potential problem here.

(Sorry for reporting this close to RC2)
